FAQ: What does CDP stand for in climate change?

CDP was previously known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, but is now shortened to CDP. This is an international non-profit organisation, that provides a platform for cities, governments, and a wide range of companies, to measure, manage and share information about their environmental impact. This information is shared within a CDP report and includes details about greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, alongside actions that will be or are currently being implemented to reduce them. The CDP and its reporting process is focused on driving action on reducing cities, organisations and individuals impact on climate change, by promoting transparency and accountability to help move towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future. Ecometrica is CDP’s only gold partner across climate, water and forests and has been helping companies with their CDP disclosures since 2010.
