What is CDP reporting and why it matters?

In today's world, environmental sustainability is a pressing concern for investors, companies, and the public.

The "E" in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reporting has gained significant attention, and CDP is helping addressing ‘E’nvironmental factors with its reporting framework. A Framework designed for companies to disclose their environmental impacts and efforts to reduce emissions, pollution, and other forms of environmental damage.

CDP reporting is a process through which companies score and share their environmental data.

How is CDP data used?

A CDP score provides a quick snapshot of how environmentally well a company is doing. CDP data reveals which companies are better long-term investments and helps investors manage environmental risks within their portfolios while assessing their investments' carbon footprint. It's not just investors that value CDP reports. More and more companies are turning to environmental scoring to evaluate their own environmental impact and of the third parties they work with.
