CDP 'A List' for climate change


Severfield plc, the market leading structural steel group, announces that the
Group has been recognised for leadership in corporate transparency and
performance on climate change by CDP, the global environmental non-profit
organisation, securing a place on its annual 'A List'.


Based on information reported through CDP's 2023 Climate Change questionnaire,
Severfield is one of a small number of companies that achieved this ranking,
out of over 21,000 companies assessed.


Achieving an 'A' rating demonstrates the Group's commitment to best practice
when it comes to reducing our impact on climate change. Other achievements
made by the Group include:


§ Achieving a 33 per cent reduction in our Scope 1 and 2 GHG (greenhouse gas)
emissions from 2018 (our base year) using a market-based approach, exceeding
our short-term target to reduce emissions by 25 per cent by 2025.


§ Switching to green electricity tariffs with 94 per cent of our total
purchased and consumed energy coming from these sources in 2023.


§ Being accredited as carbon neutral for the third year running after
third-party verification for Scope 1, 2 and operational Scope 3 GHG emissions.


§ Received validation from the SBTi (Science Based Targets initiative) of our
near-term, long-term, and overall Net Zero targets for reducing GHG emissions.


Alan Dunsmore, CEO of Severfield plc, commented: "Our commitment to reducing
our impact on climate change has never been clearer. As market leaders in the
steel industry, we have a responsibility to display best practice when it
comes to environmental disclosure, and we are pleased that CDP have recognised
that we are delivering on this."


Sherry Madera, CEO of CDP, commented: "Congratulations to all the companies on
CDP's A List. Earning a place on the A List is about more than the score. It's
an indication of high-quality, complete data that equips companies with a
holistic view of their environmental impact, serves as a baseline for
transition plans and, crucially, enables them to follow through on their

Fully TCFD aligned, CDP holds the largest environmental database in the world,
and CDP scores are widely used to drive investment and procurement decisions
towards a zero carbon, sustainable and resilient economy. In 2023, over 740
financial institutions with over US$136 trillion in assets requested companies
to disclose data on environmental impacts, risks and opportunities through
CDP's platform.


A detailed and independent methodology is used by CDP to assess these
companies, allocating a score of A to D- based on the comprehensiveness of
disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks and demonstration
of best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting
ambitious and meaningful targets.
