Through our global disclosure system we have the most comprehensive collection of self-reported environmental data in the world. This data is invaluable for cities, companies and investors to take urgent action to build a truly sustainable economy.
At CDP we focus on three main data categories: cities, states and regions data, corporate data and data for investors. On this page you can find out how these categories can benefit you in your decision making and how you can access it.
We also publish two annual A Lists – one for companies and one for cities. Find out more about CDP Scores.

We believe that data lies at the heart of the sustainable transition, and we make this data available free of charge.
We encourage users to use this data to help governments track progress on reducing emissions, adapt to climate risks and drive economic development.
