FAQ: What is a CDP score?

A CDP score is a rating system used by the CDP, you previously may have known them as the Carbon Disclosure Project. The CDP assess the performance of a diverse range of companies and cities looking specifically at how they manage their environmental impact, which includes their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A CDP score is used by companies, investors and governments to understand and compare their environmental impact. A CDP score reflects the level of transparency, action and progress an organisation is taking to reduce their GHG emissions, and is scored from A (the highest score) to D- (the lowest score). If an organisation’s CDP score is high (A the highest score), it demonstrates dedication and commitment to lowering GHG emissions and their overall environmental impact, ensuring that they are moving towards a more sustainable future.
