Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. (NYSE:MMC), a global professional services firm offering advice and solutions in risk, strategy, and human capital, today announced that it has been included in the 2013 CDP Global 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI).

Marsh & McLennan Companies is one of eight companies from the Global 500 index's financial sector to be named part of the CDLI, based on analysis of the firm's responses to CDP's questionnaire on greenhouse gas emissions, emission reduction targets, and risks and opportunities associated with climate change. In its second inclusion in the Global 500 CDLI, Marsh & McLennan Companies scored in the top 5% of financial sector respondents and in the top 10% of all respondents.

The CDLI is a key component of CDP's annual climate change report, highlighting the companies within the CDP Global 500 that have demonstrated a commitment to measure and report on carbon emissions and have acted to address climate change.

Marsh & McLennan Companies Chief Sustainability Officer Elizabeth Barry said: "We believe in leading by example and are fortunate to have a committed leadership team that has embraced sustainability and climate-related issues. Our entire organization works to differentiate our environmental sustainability and improve our performance annually in order to achieve these notable results.”

CDP Chief Executive Officer Paul Simpson said: “Companies that score highly enough to be included in the Climate Disclosure Leadership Index are responding to the call for greater corporate climate accountability. They have demonstrated leading practice for the measurement of greenhouse gas emissions and energy use and transparency of their climate change strategy.”

This month, Marsh & McLennan Companies issued a Corporate Citizenship Report showcasing its work in environmental sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and diversity and inclusion. The Company's new report is available at the following interactive microsite http://www.mmc.com/citizenship-report/.

In addition to incorporating sustainable practices in its own operations, Marsh & McLennan Companies offers a variety of environmental risk management solutions and services to assist its clients in analyzing, reducing, and managing their own environmental impact.
