[News] CDP general guidance and scoring methodology now available online

Apr 5, 2018

Guidance and scoring methodology covers all questions for CDP’s climate change, water and forest programmes

CDP has released the guidance and scoring methodology for all questions, including general and sector-specific, across its climate change, water and forests questionnaires. 

These are available on the guidance page of the CDP website, and can be exported as PDFs for ease of use. They are also available via the guidance tool viewable when you log into your account on the CDP website.

Additionally, more detailed guidance, containing a glossary of terms and example responses, will become available later in April and May. As always, Ecometrica will keep you updated when this additional guidance becomes available.
