What data do you provide?

CDP runs the world's largest environmental disclosure platform, resulting in comprehensive quantitative and qualitative datasets produced annually.  

The value chain dataset is a subset of CDP's Climate Change dataset on corporate supplier and customer engagement on environmental issues. It includes data on engagement strategy, policy engagement, trade association involvement, and more.  

Where and how do you source your data?

On behalf of its 525 investors representing $96 trillion in assets, as well as 125 purchasing companies with a combined annual spend of $3.6 trillion, CDP requests data from companies around the world on their environmental performance via its climate change questionnaire. This information is entirely self-reported and in 2018 over 7,000 from 70 countries responded to the disclosure request. CDP provides questionnaire guidance to companies to ensure uniform responses for a comparable dataset. 

Who are the data users?

Investors, corporates, and policy makers use CDP data and insights to make better decisions, manage risk, and capitalize on opportunities. Key users of CDP data in the financial community include asset managers, pension funds, data providers, and more.
