Brief description of the data offering

In response to the Financial Stability Board's creation of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) to address the risks to financial stability that climate change has on the global economy, CDP aligned specific questions of its climate change questionnaire with the TCFD recommendations in 2018.

CDP's 2021 TCFD-Aligned Climate Change dataset includes responses from more than 5,900 companies publicly disclosing to 17 high impact sector questions such as governance, strategy, emissions targets, risks and opportunities, and more.
