With COP26 just days away, the world’s attention turns once again to our global leaders as we anticipate the commitments to be set out to address the climate change crisis. CDP’s Pietro Bertazzi - Global Director of Policy Engagement and External Affairs, calls it the most important meeting since the Paris Agreement and the last chance governments have to commit to policies that can limit global warming to 1.5 degrees and avoid the irreversible impacts of climate change. Businesses will play a crucial role in making these commitments a reality and moving us from policy to its implementation. CDP wants to support businesses as much as possible to implement these policies and as such, we partner with accredited solutions providers who offer a range of services from establishing a low-carbon transition plan, to setting Science-based Targets (SBT), to developing a water strategy, and much more.
This month, we are delighted to welcome on board the following solutions providers, who will support you in implementing the policies set out by our global leaders at COP and set you on the path towards environmental leadership:
Climate Neutral Group (CNG), a silver climate change consultancy solutions provider in Benelux, supports companies with climate reduction strategy and action plans as well as making verified and credible climate claims via their global Climate Neutral Certification Standard
Digital Grid, a silver renewable energy solutions providers in Japan, offers solutions to increase renewable energy in Japan. Their consumers can directly buy from their generators at wholesale prices or utilise the new FIP subsidy to manage price risk and will match clients to their renewable energy generator partners.

Their services include carbon strategy and management, carbon footprinting according to the GHG Protocol guidelines, preparation of GHG reports and 3rd party GHG report validation, CDP reporting and setting and submitting Science Based Targets (SBT’s).
Several of our accredited solutions providers renewed their partnership with us this month and we are thrilled to be continuing to work with them to help support all companies within the CDP network:

Deloitte Italy, a silver climate change consultancy & SBT solutions provider in Italy, supports companies to manage environmental sustainability, the path towards decarbonisation and climate change governance.
