CDP Europe

 
This is why reporting through CDP is such an important tool. It can tell investors whether companies integrate climate change challenges into their corporate strategies. It can make companies discover new potential for reducing their own energy use and carbon emissions. It can make new investments more climate-proof. The insights that the CDP disclosure system provides by helping companies and cities to measure and monitor their environmental impact supports us in making better policy decisions.

Connie Hedegaard,
European Commissioner for Climate Action

 

CDP Europe is part of the CDP Global Network holding the largest database of primary corporate climate change information both worldwide and in Europe. CDP Europe’s mission is made possible through the global financial power of investors (66 trillion Euros - in assets in 2013) and increasingly also through the endorsements of European Governments and Procurement Departments of big corporations on whose behalf CDP encourages European based corporations for more sustainable environmental transparency and performance.

CDP Europe thereby helps to pave the way for a coordinated European mandatory and integrated reporting working closely with the European Commission, Parliament and individual Member States (MS) governments. CDP Europe provides support and advice to governments establishing both voluntary and mandatory corporate environmental reporting systems, integrated reporting of climate change information within mainstream annual reports, the harmonization of methodologies to measure greenhouse gas emissions and best practice in terms of carbon management for companies.

The important impact of better resource efficiency on climate change is too often underestimated. This is why I welcome CDP’s vision to widen its scope to include natural capital and resources. It reflects an important change in the approach of corporations. Companies need stronger, more long-term price signals to produce returns on investment, and it is for public authorities to provide the right signals, incentives, direction and most importantly leadership.

Dr Janez Potočnik,
European Commissioner for the Environment

 

More than 800 of Europe’s largest listed companies currently work with CDP Europe to measure and report their strategic impacts and risks relating to climate change and water. In 2012, 91% of the Euro Stoxx 300 have disclosed environmental data to CDP recording the highest rate worldwide.

Across Europe CDP is collaborating with governments, companies, investors and stakeholders supported through a regional network of offices country offices in Berlin (Europe headquarter), Brussels (EU), Dublin, London, Milan, Paris, Stockholm and Warsaw.

EU office

The EU Policy office in Brussels acts as the focal point for EU affairs, as well as facilitating the CDP network activities in the European capital by building partnerships and contacts with European institutions and stakeholders. It is located within walking distance from the EP and in the heart of the EU institutions headquarters.

While we can learn a lot from data collected and analyzed by public authorities, voluntary initiatives from the private sector such as the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) are essential elements to achieve a better common knowledge base among public and private actors....The CDP (Europe) 2011 report illustrates, once again, that tackling climate change in a comprehensive manner is a no-regrets measure from a business perspective, pursuing sustainability as we find new ways to increase our prosperity.
