Amplifon, a provider of hearing care services and solutions, obtained for the first time a ‘Score B’ (Full Management) in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Climate Change 2023 questionnaire, which is dedicated to the most climate-conscious companies, according to the company.
The ranking groups companies that stand out for their commitment and transparency in combating climate change. In 2023, more than 23,000 companies worldwide participated in the questionnaire. CDP is a non-profit charitable organization that manages the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states, and regions to coordinate their environmental impact.
This recognition confirms the Group’s active role in improving performance and transparency on environmental issues. It also reflected in the ESG objectives of Amplifon’s Sustainability Plan and formalization of the commitment to define science-based decarbonization targets (in line with SBTi, Science-Based Target initiative) for the company’s climate strategy.
Amplifon also recently acquired the business of one of the main Miracle-Ear franchisees in the United States.
The network, owned by three companies (Hearing Pro Inc., Las Davis Enterprises Inc., and Miracle-Ear Centers of Arkansas LLC), comprises around 50 points of sale located in four States (Arkansas, Kansas, Illinois, and Missouri) with annual revenues of around 20 million dollars and circa 85 employees. Miracle-Ear is the brand through which Amplifon operates in the U.S. retail market via corporate stores and shops in franchising.
