CDP runs the global environmental disclosure system. Each year CDP supports thousands of companies, cities, states and regions to measure and manage their risks and opportunities on climate change, water security and deforestation. We do so at the request of their investors, purchasers and city stakeholders.
Over the last two decades we have created a system that has resulted in unparalleled engagement on environmental issues worldwide.
Over 525 investors with US$96 trillion in assets requested companies disclose through CDP on climate change, water security and forests
125 major buyers, with combined purchasing power of US$3.6 trillion asked their suppliers to disclose through CDP
Each year, CDP takes the information supplied in its annual reporting process and scores companies and cities based on their journey through disclosure and towards environmental leadership. Through our independent scoring methodology, we measure corporate and city progress and incentivize action on climate change, forests and water security.
Founded in 2000, CDP was the first platform to link environmental integrity and fiduciary duty. Now with the world’s largest, most comprehensive dataset on environmental action, the insights that CDP holds empowers investors, companies, cities, and national and regional governments to make the right choices today to build a thriving economy that works for people and planet in the long term.
