July is a busy month at CDP, where companies must submit their 2022 response to be eligible for scoring. This year, we expect to see an unprecedented number of companies disclosing via CDP, as more and more businesses realise the importance of demonstrating to their stakeholders that they are taking action to transition to a climate safe, deforestation free and water secure world. With companies being responsible for some 70% of global emissions, and with their supply chain emissions being, on average, 11 times greater than their own operational emissions, they have the power to drive meaningful actions towards a sustainable future. From reporting environmental risks and opportunities to setting ambitious science-based targets, our accredited solutions providers (ASPs) can support you with a range of services to ensure your business is playing a part in the shift to a low-carbon economy.
This month, we are excited to announce that the following companies have come on board as accredited solutions providers and are available to support stakeholders with a variety of environmental issues:
CarbonQuota, a silver carbon reduction solutions provider in the UK, supports with automating carbon measurement processes. Their technology-led solutions and database provide a full automated process for the analysis of carbon emissions. The calculation technology is provided online or via API where it can be integrated into a company’s existing ERP/MIS applications. They specialise in the print and packaging sector and focus on the scientific measurement of complex and multi-tier supply chains.
