What is it?

CDP is a not-for-profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states, and regions to manage their environmental impacts.

CDP was established as the ‘Carbon Disclosure Project’ in 2000. In 2021 they launched a new strategy that expanded to cover all planetary boundaries. 

CDP now runs the global environmental disclosure system. Each year CDP supports thousands of companies, cities, states, and regions to measure and manage their risks and opportunities on climate change, water security, and deforestation.

Each year, CDP takes the information supplied in its annual reporting process and scores companies and cities based on their journey through disclosure and toward environmental leadership. Through their independent scoring methodology, they measure corporate and city progress and incentivize action on climate change, forests, and water security.
