TOKYO -- Nikkei Asia, in partnership with sister publication the Financial Times and data provider Statista, is compiling a list of Asia-Pacific companies that have achieved the greatest reduction in the intensity of greenhouse gas emissions.

The intention is to highlight businesses whose GHG emissions intensity -- emissions relative to revenue -- fell the most between 2015 and 2020. The list will be published in mid-2022 on and in the Nikkei Asia magazine.

A sister list covering European companies compiled by the FT and Statista can be found here.

To participate, we invite you to fill out a short questionnaire about your company's GHG emissions for all available years between 2015 and 2020 and its revenue over the same period (or, for banks, net interest income). We also ask you to send us a data verification form, which needs to be downloaded and signed.

Eligibility for the list will be determined by the compound annual reduction rate (CARR) of emissions intensity. Potential candidates will be contacted by Statista or can put their name forward on the Statista website, which also has more information about methodology and conditions of participation as well as useful contacts.

Inclusion on the Climate Leaders Asia-Pacific 2022 list offers a number of benefits:


A company's inclusion on the Climate Leaders Asia-Pacific list will be a visible and public acknowledgment of its environmental performance that will extend far beyond any specific industry or country. It has the potential to generate attention among possible partners, customers, employees and investors around the world.


The list will be published on and as well as in the Nikkei Asia weekly magazine.


All companies that make the list may use the award logo for marketing purposes.*


All participants that provide us with data on their GHG emissions and revenue will receive a free two-week Statista corporate subscription trial, irrespective of whether they are among the listed companies.

To be considered for inclusion, your company must meet the following criteria:

--Generated at least $50 million in revenue in 2020
