L&T Finance Holdings makes remarkable improvements on the sustainability front, earns globally coveted rating
In its latest report, the international non-profit organisation CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project) has assigned a coveted ‘B’ score to L&T Finance Holdings (LTFH).
This is up from the ‘D’ score that LTFH had earned in 2021. Based on voluntary disclosures, CDP assesses the environmental impact of the companies and cities concerned. It aims to make environmental reporting and risk management a business norm and motivate action towards a sustainable economy. 
CDP’s ratings are the gold standard of environmental reporting, with the richest and most comprehensive dataset on corporate action. LTFH has been reporting to CDP India on climate change since 2020.

LTFH’s significant improvement in CDP score indicates that the company is taking coordinated action on climate issues towards implementing sustainable processes and systems. The improvement can be attributed to LTFH’s growing focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) measures.
LTFH has also adopted specific targets for carbon neutrality by 2035 and water positivity by 2023.
The company has aligned its internal policies, processes, and activities, keeping in mind the environmental impacts and opportunities.
“Our ESG roadmap is aligned to L&T Group’s overall five-year strategic plan, Lakshya 2026. We are focusing on decarbonising our business footprint by using green power and creating carbon sinks to offset residual emissions. The significant improvement in our CDP score is a validation of our commitment and efforts at building an ESG-conscious organisation and affirms that we are on track,” says Mr Dinanath Dubhashi (MD & CEO – LTFH).
