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 620 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.
This webinar co-hosted by CDP and ICLEI will inform you about how to accurately collect and report risk and adaptation related data through the CDP online reporting platform. The webinar provides details of the multiple tools and guidance provided by each organization to help build resilience in your city
Have you recently declared a climate emergency? Are you struggling to know what to do next?
This webinar provides a beginner’s guide to climate reporting and goal setting: For the climate declarations to be credible and drive real change most effectively; transparency, data-driven planning and effective monitoring and reporting are key. Gathering and understanding information about the current situation for your area will give your constituents confidence in the ambition and effectiveness of your actions. High quality data will support public engagement; business and investment decisions and will ensure that you are able to target your actions towards the most significant sources of emissions and deliver the highest reductions.
Are you curious how your city’s goals and action stack up to the latest climate science? This year, as part of your CDP disclosure, you can enter World Wildlife Fund’s One Planet City Challenge (OPCC) and receive actionable feedback about how your city measures up to a 1.5 degree reduction pathway. You can also see you work side-by-side with a diverse global cohort of cities for insight exploring new ideas.
Now in its eighth year, the OPCC is an initiative organized by WWF to guide cities towards the most effective, evidence-based climate action, as well as recognize outstanding leadership.
WWF, together with C40 and Arup have developed a new assessment methodology expanding on C40’s Deadline 2020 framework allowing any city to better measure their action in-line with the Paris Agreement and IPCC 1.5 report. Cities wishing to participate in the One Planet City Challenge (OPCC) are invited to report their climate ambitions through CDP’s reporting platform.
Watch this webinar from WWF and CDP on the OPCC and more benefits to disclosure this year.
