CDP Response Services and Score Optimisation
Investors and large multinationals are driving the push to environmental and sustainability disclosures across all industries and geographies. CDP runs one of the largest global environmental disclosure systems covering thousands of companies, cities, states and regions.
Submitting to CDP’s online response system (ORS) can take time and often involves finding data from multiple documents and people. Keeping on top of progress can be tricky, especially when some questions only appear depending on the answer to another.
Ecometrica is CDP’s only Gold Partner across all 3 of their programmes.
CDP Score Benchmarking
Submitting a CDP disclosure is often followed by a long wait to get your score. Remove the uncertainty and be confident in your submission.
Our Score Benchmarking service shows where you are gaining points, where you are missing out on easy marks, and what score you would expect. CDP’s scoring system contains hidden marks that are dependent on the answers and options given to certain questions. Our analysts are well versed in understanding the score hierarchy and can provide options and suggestions to make sure you are not missing out on recognition you deserve.
