Request for Proposal
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. As part of this yearly cycle, CDP scores the responses of thousands of companies and hundreds of cities. We are currently seeking expressions of interest from organizations to become our main scoring partner for the 2020 scoring cycle with an option for yearly renewal. For more information on CDP more broadly please visit: cdp.net/en/info/about-us/what-we-do
CDP produces highly regarded scoring methodologies in order to assess the responses companies provide to our questionnaires. We develop methodologies for the assessment of City responses, Corporate Climate Change, Corporate Water and Corporate Forest responses. The corporate responses, questionnaires and methodology are sector specific, however the base of it remains a general set of questions, for example some sectors will only have a couple of extra questions added from the general questionnaire.
Once the deadline for responses has passed, CDP gather all of the submitted data, processes the data, and sends scoring templates to our scoring partner and gives them access to company responses, under an NDA, for them to assess said responses and input the numerical value into the scoring template. The bulk of this work is expected to be between August and October.
We are seeking an organization that will :
|Theme||Expected volume||Average score time per response ( in hours)|
|Climate Change full||1950||3|
|Climate Change Minimum||60||1.5|
Full and minimum refers to the questionnaire the company has responded to and the time difference to assess is based on the complexity of the information requested and provided.
The above volumes include all languages, the majority of responses are in English, please find below the expected volumes for other languages scored.
Please note that we are looking for one scoring partner to score all above themes, regions and languages. However, we might consider splitting these per region or themes if necessary.
The CDP scoring partner shall:
