FAQ: What is the purpose of the CDP?

The CDP initiative (previously known as the Carbon Disclosure Project) is used globally to encourage cities, governments and companies to disclose information about their environmental impact, helping to drive action on critical sustainability issues such as climate change, water security and deforestation. The CDP aims to create a more sustainable future by providing a platform for cities, organisations and governments to report on their environmental impact and to be held accountable for their sustainability practices. The CDP report provides a standardised framework for environmental impacts to be disclosed, learnings to be taken and actions for improvement to be taken. The purpose of CDP is to promote and encourage environmental sustainability, driving action to achieve a more sustainable future globally. Ecometrica helps companies disclose to the CDP.
