In a year of ever-increasing environmental concerns around the world – from extreme weather to unprecedented losses to nature – the need for transformational, urgent and collaborative change is more critical than ever.
CDP holds the largest environmental database in the world, and this year scored nearly 15,000 companies on their climate change, forests and water security disclosures.
These 330+ companies are leading the way in environmental transparency and performance on climate change, deforestation and water security.
By scoring companies from A to D-, we take them on a journey through disclosure to awareness, management, and finally to leadership. Our scoring measures the comprehensiveness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks and best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets.
The bar on what qualifies as climate, forests and water leadership is regularly lifted in line with emerging environmental science, feedback from stakeholders, and market needs. Although companies that achieve an A are among the most transparent when it comes to disclosure and performance on climate change, deforestation or water security, they are not at the end of their environmental journey.

CDP disclosure and scores play a key role in keeping companies on a journey of continuous environmental improvement. In 2022, a record-breaking 18,700+ companies representing half of global market capitalization disclosed through CDP – 42% more than last year, and over 233% more than when the Paris Agreement was signed in 2015.
CDP’s questionnaires are fully aligned with the recommendations of the TCFD (Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosure), and ideally positioned to mainstream the widespread adoption of other emerging frameworks and standards.
The number of disclosing companies has grown each year since 2003.
More than 18,700 companies disclosed their climate, forests and water security impacts through CDP in 2022.
Of nearly 15,000 companies scored, 330+ made it onto this year’s A List. These companies are leading the way in environmental transparency.
A List companies hail from around the world, with more in Europe than any other region.
