  • TDF topped the 2021 overall ESG world ranking scoring 100/100
  • TDF once again named Sector Leader and awarded 5 stars for its top ranking

GRESB recently awarded TDF Group a 100/100 score for its 2020 environment, social and governance (ESG) performance. As such, TDF comes top overall and is awarded Sector Leader in the Data Infrastructure and Data Infrastructure – Data Transmission categories.

Leading ESG rating agency GRESB compares and assesses corporations on their ESG management performance and publishes an annual ranking thereof.

TDF pledges as responsible industrial company

TDF continues to climb the GRESB ranking by increasing its overall score by 3 points since last year. This score attests to the ongoing improvements achieved by all Company departments and the Company’s determination to benchmark its climate risk management procedures. The score is furthermore testament to the Company’s social responsibility actions against the backdrop of the pandemic.

TDF Group’s ESG policy states its twelve pledges underpinned by four key priorities: (i) connect the regions, (ii) safeguard well-being at work, (iii) be an ethical and socially responsible company and (iv) protect the environment. An ESG department reporting to top management has been introduced to oversee ESG performance and approve ESG strategy. What’s more, having signed up to the UN’s Global Compact in 2014, every year TDF publishes its Communication on Progress.

Looking forward to the 2022 assessment, TDF will continue to highlight its dynamic ESG practices focusing on steps taken to achieve the UN’s sustainable development goals.

TDF Group CEO Olivier Huart said: “I’m immensely proud we came top of the 2021 world ranking that bears out all Group staff’s ESG contribution during the year. Since GRESB began assessing us, I am fully aware of the long journey we have travelled to make our operations sustainable. Against the backdrop of the global pandemic, more than ever ESG issues have to be a core priority for corporations. It’s up to me to make sure our ESG activities are fully in line with Group strategy”.

Arcus Infrastructure Partners Senior Investment Director Romain Roirand and Partner Christopher Ehrke, who also serves as Tivana France Holdings SAS (TDF parent company) board chairman, said: “We’re honoured to congratulate TDF for their outstanding score at the top of the 2021 world ranking, which reflects the quantity and quality of all staff’s ESG efforts. So we’d like to extend a big thank you to all TDF people for their unfailing dedication to the cause and the huge progress they have achieved. GRESB’s assessment is a key ESG performance indicator and an important measure in our asset management stock picking”.

GRESB CEO Sébastien Roussotte said: “Sector Leaders are organisations that lead the way in ESG performance based on their pledges and action. We’re delighted to reward your determination, achievements and leadership in helping bring about a more responsible and sustainable world”.
