Kao Corporation, a renowned Japanese chemical and cosmetics company, reportedly announced that it has been selected to be inducted into the A List created by renowned UK based NPO, CDP, for climate change and water. The A List contains the names of a certain number of companies that receive the highest evaluation for their proactive efforts and measures that address environmental concerns.

These companies receive this evaluation on the basis of an international survey of business enterprises’ response towards the issue of climate change as well as their activities in regard to water security. The number of respondent firms in this global survey was 2,435 for water security and 8,361 for climate change.
