Since 2018, CDP’s disclosure has been aligned with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Disclosure (TCFD), implemented through our annual disclosure process. Most current policy recommendations call for disclosure in accordance with the TCFD, which means that companies disclosing through CDP are already disclosing this data in a format consistent with the TCFD, helping advance their policy preparedness.
"CDP is to the future of business what the X-Ray machine was to the then-future of medicine. Without it, we would never see the inside of the patient’s health.”Christiana Figueres, co-founder of Global Optimism and former Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC
CDP pioneered environmental disclosure 20 years ago with the world’s first standardized investor request for disclosure. Today, CDP still operates the world’s only integrated environmental disclosure system covering climate change, forests and water security – and will expand into disclosure on biodiversity and oceans.
"Disclosure means everything. A company has to be transparent and have good data, and connect that data to science – which is why what CDP does is important."Gina McCarthy, White House National Climate Advisor
