CDP's climate change program works to reduce companies’ greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change risk.

We believe that improving corporate awareness through measurement and disclosure is vital to the effective management of carbon and climate change risk. We request information on the risks and opportunities of climate from the world’s largest companies on behalf of 827 institutional investor signatories with a combined US$100 trillion in assets.

CDP's analytics tool has transformed how we use data to benchmark our risks, opportunities,
and emissions reduction targets against sector peers.
