CDP provides the only global system that tracks how companies and cities measure, disclose, manage, and act upon vital environmental information. CDP’s annual request for information from public companies is sent on behalf of its investor signatory base, which includes approximately 700 key financial service sector enterprises. By securing quantitative and qualitative information on environmental performance, CDP analysts and researchers can then transform that data into detailed analyses on critical environmental risks, opportunities, and impacts for investors, policymakers, and other constituents worldwide. CDP maintains and makes public the largest collection of global climate change, water, and forest risk data to better inform sustainable strategic business, investment, and policy decisions.
