As a not-for-profit charity, CDP Europe receives funding support from a range of organizations.
CDP Worldwide (Europe) gGmbH’s income in the year ending 31 March 2019 (2018/19) was €2,45 million and came from the following sources.
Please also see our annual report for the financial year 2018-2019.
Income that CDP Europe receives from corporates and investors includes income from administrative fees and on-demand scoring (for companies that submit data past the deadline to respond). All investors, and companies using CDP's platform to respond to investors, make a subsidized contribution to CDP, which partially covers the cost of operating the platform and is subsidized by other sources of funding. CDP also offers that companies and investors make either a higher, standard contribution, which covers the full cost of maintaining the disclosure system, or an enhanced contribution, which further supports our mission. As a non-profit organization, corporate and investor contributions are used to maintain the disclosure system in order to support growing traffic.
Have a look at the CDP Worldwide Trustee Report and Financial Statements for the year ending 31 March 2018.
We would also like to thank the organisations that have, and continue to, support the work of CDP. CDP supporters support us via the standard contribution admin fee, which covers the full cost of operating the CDP disclosure system. Premium CDP supporters offer an enhanced admin fee, which makes an additional contribution to support CDP Europe's mission as a non-profit organisation.
