CDP sits at the heart of the capital market response to water scarcity, deforestation and climate change, and our data is disseminated throughout the whole market. From portfolio building to policy setting, engagement to ESG research, we work with investors to ensure environmental data is integrated throughout the whole investment process.
If there was no CDP data then a lot of the other players in the market would not have the data they require to provide their services.Schroders
Investors use our company data when selecting stocks, identifying the companies that will be better investments over the long term, based on their environmental position. Read our case study about how Schroders used our data to pick future winners and losers.
Investors use our data and forward-looking metrics to identify and manage their exposure to environmental risks. Our award-winning investor research also flags up the material environmental risks faced by companies in key sectors.
As well as informing our own research, CDP data is used by investors as part of their own ESG analysis, and it also feeds into the wider ESG research industry.
CDP data and insight can help investors develop their own environmental policies. Read our case study about how CDP helped the Environment Agency Pension Fund create their highly acclaimed Policy to Address the Impacts of Climate Change.
