Water Scoring Methdology 2014
Also available as an excel worksheet (zip)
In 2014, CDP’s water scoring methodology will be tested as a pilot on Global 500 respondents on a confidential basis. Results may be communicated in an aggregated manner publicly in September/October 2014. During 2014, CDP will engage with respondents and other key stakeholders in a range of ways to obtain feedback on the methodology and ensure that it is robust and of the highest possible quality. The final scoring methodology will be published in February 2015 and applied across all respondents from June - August 2015. A decision has yet to be made as to how final scores will be communicated.
