This month, we’ve seen COP27 take place in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. During these busy two weeks, CDP made several announcements including their decision to incorporate the International Sustainability Standard Board’s (ISSB) IFRS S2 Climate-related Disclosures Standard into its global environmental disclosure platform; a decision which will not only improve the consistency of climate-related information for investors but also reduce the disclosure burden on entities through an alignment of requirements. We’ve also seen the Biden Administration make CDP’s model the law, requiring that major federal suppliers disclose their environmental impacts through CDP and publicly disclose greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and climate-related financial risk, as well as setting science-based GHG reduction targets. These are big developments in environmental disclosure, with the latter emphasising the increasingly common pressure and need to engage your suppliers on your journey to a low-carbon future. Whether you’ve been disclosing through CDP for a number of years or are looking to get started in the near future, our accredited solutions providers (ASPs) offer a wide range of services and expertise to help you along the way; be it from creating a sustainability strategy, calculating and verifying your Scope 3 emissions to setting a science-based target.
This month, we are excited to announce that the following company has come on board as an accredited solutions provider and is available to support stakeholders with a variety of environmental issues:
CarbonChain, a silver software solutions provider in the UK, helps companies and financial institutions accurately calculate and report their supply chain and portfolio emissions. The carbon accounting software provides automated, asset-level emissions accounting for supply chains, providing insight into carbon-related risks and opportunities in near real-time. CarbonChain fills the Scope 3 data gap with an emissions database that covers the most carbon-intensive sectors (metals and mining, oil and gas, and agriculture), and a verified methodology aligned with the GHG Protocol.
We are also delighted to announce that the following accredited solutions providers have renewed their partnerships with CDP and will continue to support companies on their environmental journeys:
