As the world takes steps towards building a climate safe, deforestation free, water secure future, disclosure provides the bedrock for ambitious action. The richest and most comprehensive dataset, CDP's data both fuels and tracks the global progress towards building a truly sustainable economy for people and planet.
By reporting to CDP, you can gain competitive advantage by getting ahead of regulatory and policy changes, identifying and tackling growing risks and finding the new opportunities for action being demanded by your investors and customers across the world.
"As long-term owners of corporations, our role is to ensure that company strategies are in line with ours on areas such as climate risk. CDP's data is very useful in helping us do this efficiently and effectively. Mapping a company's carbon footprint, or the emissions it produces, and measuring its progress in this area is an important and growing part of our portfolio analysis."

"Once you measure your performance and identify a set of targets, you create the conditions to achieve them. Then you have to set a higher and higher bar all the time to continue to deliver for your shareholders... It’s a feedback loop, and CDP has been instrumental in that because it’s such a quantitative, objective measure of how we are doing."

"When building our carbon strategy, CDP’s scoring methodology is very useful in helping us get buy-in from executive audiences. They like the fact that if we’re scoring low on one aspect, we can break it down in a clear way to see where the opportunities for improvement lie. Then next year, when our score improves, they can see the tangible output of those actions.”

“CDP provides not only a disclosure platform but also a well-established rating mechanism. Being able to say we are on the A List is well-recognised. It shows we have a complete and well performing sustainability program, so we use our CDP score in external communications and investor presentations, and we get recognition for that.”
