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 2020 (2019-20) was €2,8 million and came from the following sources.
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.
