. Philips and Royal Dutch Shell also scored as two of the industry leaders in the CDP 2010 Global 500 Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index.
. The questionnaire responses indicate that top scoring companies have a considerable focus on climate change risk management and have integrated this into their overall corporate strategy, facilitating the identification of potential opportunities.
