The CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) is an organisation based in the United Kingdom which supports companies and cities to disclose the environmental impact of major corporations. It aims to make environmental reporting and risk management a business norm, and drive disclosure, insight and action towards a sustainable economy. Since 2002 over 6,000 companies have publicly disclosed environmental information through CDP.
CDP wants to see a thriving economy that works for people and planet in the long term. To do this we focus investors, companies and cities on taking urgent action to build a truly sustainable economy by measuring and understanding their environmental impact.
To achieve this, CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project, runs the global disclosure system that enables companies, cities, states and regions to measure and manage their environmental impacts. We have built the most comprehensive collection of self-reported environmental data in the world.
Our network of investors and purchasers, representing over $100 trillion, along with policy makers around the globe, use our data and insights to make better-informed decisions. Through offices and partners in 50 countries we have driven unprecedented levels of environmental disclosure.
