CDP's cities program is the largest global reporting platform for cities. Participating in the program is a great way for you to network with other cities and share best practices.
Every participating city is featured in our global report, raising your city’s profile both internationally and internally within your city government. Our global report is featured in news articles worldwide.
CDP recognizes that climate change challenges and opportunities will be unique to each city and will vary with location, current reporting effort, and stage of development. The reporting process is deliberately flexible and will evolve over time as more cities join the project and as cities priorities and perspectives change.
Crucially, CDP believes that a standard global reporting platform for urban climate change-related data will put climate change information at the heart of business, policy and investment decisions and accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy.
