Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, today announced it has been awarded the highest rating of "A"—Supplier Engagement Leader in the 2020 Supplier Engagement Rating (SER) conducted by CDP. The aforementioned “A” rating derives from the highest scores in the key rating items, namely "Supplier Engagement" (Note 1), "Scope 3 Emissions" (Note 2), and "Overall CDP Climate Change Performance," ranking among the top 7% assessed enterprises. This Supplier Engagement Leader recognition also follows Delta’s success in attaining "double-A (leadership level)" rating in the 2020 CDP evaluation for two major environmental items: "Climate Change" and "Water Security", thus, three key honors by CDP for Delta in 2020. These accolades demonstrate that Delta not only responds to climate change with actions, but also collaborates with business partners actively to build a sustainable value chain, and its efforts and outcomes are highly recognized internationally.
