Saab on CDP’s prestigious A list for climate change efforts

Saab has been recognised for leadership in corporate transparency and performance on climate change by the global environmental non-profit organisation CDP, securing a place on its annual ‘A list’.


Saab is taking part in the global efforts to reduce carbon emissions and ensure long-term competitiveness. As a result, Saab is one of only a few companies world-wide that received an A grade in the climate change category of CDP’s list.

As the first major defence company to have its science-based targets approved in December 2022, Saab is now delivering on them.

"Combatting climate change is one of the most important issues of our time. We are proud that the extensive work by our environment team is now being recognised by such an important organisation as CDP. This is a clear signal that Saab is on the right track with our sustainability strategy and our ambition to be a sustainability leader in the defence sector,” says Viktor Wallström, Senior Vice President and Head of Group Communication and Sustainability at Saab.

As a result of the improved management of both climate change and water security, Saab has leveled up the company’s scoring in both areas.
