For nearly two decades, CDP has been bringing investors and banks together and using their combined influence to push for more and better environmental reporting from companies. This approach has worked, and we now have the most comprehensive and consistent global environmental dataset for investors to access.
Every year, investors and banks working with CDP ask companies to respond to our questionnaires on climate change, deforestation and water security. In 2023, companies can also disclose on plastics through CDP’s water security questionnaire. The requesting investors and banks can access the companies’ responses and can use the data and insights in their own investment process.
We also run a non-disclosure campaign, in which we work with investors to target companies that repeatedly fail to disclose.
CDP has moved the needle on carbon reporting in the past decade and given us the opportunity to tackle it effectively and measure progressCalPERS
