Response Check is a high level 'checking' service for CDP responding companies that have completed their 2017 CDP response. Prior to final submission to CDP, an external check can now be performed to ensure the response is as complete as possible. The Response Check service is delivered by CDP's accredited consultancy partners who have received training from CDP on the Response Check methodology and process.
The Response Check offering, standardised around the world, features a review of your CDP response followed by email and telephone feedback. There will be a maximum time commitment from consultants of five hours with an approximate turnaround time of one working week. You will then incorporate the Response Check feedback into your response and submit to CDP via our Online Response System (ORS).
Response Check does not guarantee a responding company a better disclosure or performance score, nor is it verification or assurance of a CDP response. It is simply an additional set of expert eyes reviewing a response before final submission, with an emphasis on completeness rather than the quality of the content.
A standard charge of US$1,000 for the service will be charged by CDP's consultancy partners. CDP is not involved in the financial transaction or the Response Check service at an individual company level and receives none of this revenue.
Response Check from WSP provided Cisco an independent perspective comparing our responses to CDP's reporting criteria. This confidential review helped us refine our responses and further the drive for complete, accurate and transparent GHG emission reporting.Darrel Stickler, Cisco
