Result of the Climate Performance Assessment
of Green Planet Energy

"The result provides a big help in reflecting on the company's own actions and efforts and taking a self-critical look at them. It became clear that Green Planet Energy scored above average in the areas of governance and transparency compared to other companies of its size. Accountability at management level and commitment to energy policy are two aspects that deserve special mention. By contrast, the biggest challenges have been identified in the Metrics and Targets area. Concrete tasks still exist there, for example, in the naming and tracking of specific reduction targets."
