Companies that measure their environmental risk are better able to manage it strategically. And those that are transparent and disclose this information are providing decision makers with access to a critical source of global data that delivers the evidence and insight required to drive action.
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.
