CDP provides the global platform for cities to measure, manage and disclose their environmental data. We work with more than 500 cities who are now measuring and disclosing environmental data on an annual basis in order to manage emissions, build resilience, and protect themselves from the growing impacts of climate change. These cities are disclosing over 4,800 climate actions demonstrating their commitment to tackle climate change. You can view cities data on our Open Data Portal.

Learn how your approach to tracking and reporting climate change data, including early involvement of stakeholders and the private sector, can help facilitate implementation of an action plan and get your city out of its measurement and reporting rut. This webinar will be led by WSP | Parsons Brinkerhoff, an accredited service provider.
With completion of your CDP reporting, opportunities may have been identified for capital infrastructure improvements that can help your agency continue on its path for further emission reductions. PFM, an accredited service provider to CDP, will lead this webinar discussion of financing tools available to cities for projects of these types. By leveraging consumption savings and various incentives and funding structures, many projects can be completed at little or no additional cost to the city.
Join CDP and HDR as we explore best practices and lessons learned in how to effectively assess climate risk, communicate potential impacts, and make data-driven decisions to prioritize action.
