Reporting under the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)
What is CDP?
The CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, is a non-profit environmental disclosure organization. With offices and partners located in 50 countries, it has a far reach, with over 90 countries represented by reporting entities.
The CDP is motivated to mitigate the effects of climate change. Its mission is to provide investors, companies, and governing authorities with the information necessary to measure their impact on the environment in a transparent and equitable manner.
How to disclose with CDP?
For new users, the first step is to create an account with CDP. If your organization already discloses to CDP, you must get access to the organization’s account.
Before your organization can begin its annual disclosures, it must activate the questionnaire, which is available in January. In April, the Online Response System (ORS) opens, and remains open until the end of September. However, if your company wants to receive a CDP score, it must submit its disclosures by the end of July.
