“Standing out from the crowd” . The minimum score threshold to enter the 2012 Benelux CDLI was 79. Philips leads the CDLI with 98, with Koninklijke KPN N.V. in second with a score of 94. CDLI companies account for 97% of the total disclosed Scope 1 and 2 emissions by Benelux respondents. Leaders are also thinking longer term when it comes to setting targets and strategies. 87% of the CDLI companies demonstrate verification on their cope 1 and 2 emissions, while only 17% of non-CDLI companies did so. Leaders are also better in disclosing information about Scope 3 emissions. While risks and opportunities are heavily weighted in CDP’s scoring, many companies struggle to achieve high scores in these areas. This indicates that risks and opportunities are important areas of focus for Benelux companies. With regards to performance,  Koninklijke KPN N.V. was the only company to achieve a performance score high enough to enter the CPLI. This suggests that while Benelux companies score relatively high on disclosure, there is room for improvement to embed strategies into day-to-day business and increase climate change performance.”
