Our cities are changing. More than ever, cities around the world are leading the way to building a sustainable economy. But we need to move even faster. Explore our Open Data Portal for more on how cities across the globe are taking environmental action.
CDP provides the global platform for cities to measure, manage and disclose their environmental data. We work with over 800 cities measuring and disclosing environmental data each year to manage emissions, build resilience, protect themselves from climate impacts and create better places for people to live and work. These cities are disclosing over 8,000 urban sustainability actions, demonstrating their commitment to building a sustainable economy and tackling climate change. We are nearing a tipping point in mainstreaming environmental action, and cities are at the heart of this transition.

CDP houses the world’s largest, most comprehensive dataset on environmental action – but as the data grows to include thousands more companies and cities each year, there is even greater potential for our data to be utilized in impactful ways. That’s why we are excited to launch a virtual data competition with Kaggle (a Google company) this October through December. Data scientists will scour environmental information provided to CDP by disclosing companies and cities, searching for solutions to our most pressing problems related to climate change, water security, deforestation and social inequity. CDP will award $90,000 in total prizes to the winners. The competition opens for entries on October 14th, with a final submission deadline of December 2nd.
