CDP is seeking a highly motivated, flexible technical manager who thrives in a fast paced, varied and autonomous environment. Your ability to provide leadership to the next stage of our strategic Reimagining Disclosure program will be critical ensuring that we deliver on our ambitious goals. You will be part of the Technical Team, which supports the development of questionnaires, scoring methodologies and guidance for companies reporting environmental information to investors and customers. You will report to the Director of Technical Reporting.
CDP’s Reimagining Disclosure programme is an ambitious programme of change over the next 3 years with the development of sector specific questionnaires and assessments, and a new disclosure IT platform to collect nearly 10,000 business responses to questions on climate, water and deforestation, as well as on their supply chains. You will be helping to deliver this evolution, supporting the Technical Reporting Director in leading the team by focussing on sectors in the financial services and construction industries.
In helping to develop these areas, you will need to find a balance between completeness, transparency and quality of disclosure on the one hand, with the practicality, resulting effort and lead time for companies to collect and collate new data sets in their organization and throughout their value chain.
This is an excellent opportunity to enhance your project management skills and make an impact globally to how companies respond to the key environmental challenges of climate change, water and deforestation.
CDP’s Technical Team leads development of what information companies are requested to disclose, guidance and assessment of the disclosure, and the curation and provision of the data to investors and other data users.
