Entergy Corp. has been recognized by CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) for its efforts to fight climate change, landing on the CDP's 2015 Climate “A” List, which indicates ecologically conscious companies in the Standard and Poor’s (S&P) 500 index, Entergy said on Monday.

"Each year, Entergy participates in the CDP assessment as a means of benchmarking and elevating our risk assessment, reviewing and adjusting our climate strategy and measuring our progress against our goals," Rod West, Entergy's executive vice president and chief administrative officer, said. "Investors use these lists to identify companies that are well-positioned to succeed in a low-carbon economy. It is important to be recognized for the forward-thinking steps our company is taking to ensure long-term success."

Entergy said this is the third straight year the company has made the "A" list. CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project, assessed approximately 2,000 companies internationally. A total of 113 companies made the list, including 34 U.S. companies.

The group also listed Entergy on its U.S. Climate Disclosure Leadership Index, which recognizes the company’s climate-change-related strategies and risk-management processes in addition to carbon-footprint management. Entergy has been included on this list seven times.

Entergy operates approximately 10,000 megawatts of electricity through nuclear generation.
