CDP - Carbon Disclosure Project

CDP (ex Carbon Disclosure Project) is the global disclosure system for managing the environmental impacts of the private sector, the most important and widespread reporting system capable of providing environmental information and data to investors and the market.

CDP questionnaires help the private sector to communicate effectively their strategies for measuring emissions and managing the risks and opportunities associated with the effects of climate change. CDP is a tool available to companies to set their climate strategy and to compare themselves with companies in their sector even at an international level. The questionnaire is divided into different reporting sections in analogy with the thematic areas recommended by the Task Force on Climate-related Disclosures (TCFD) e relative a governance, business strategy, gestione di rischi e opportunità, definizione di target e rendicontazione di metriche legate al cambiamento climatico.

CDP currently has three different types of thematic questionnaires to which companies can answer:

Climate Change Questionnaire

Reporting of GHG emissions, energy consumption, an approach to climate risk and the presence of any reduction targets are required.

Water Security Questionnaire

Existing and future water risk assessment, water management strategy and other information on water use.

Forests Questionnaire

Evaluation of activities/materials related to deforestation(timber, palm oil, cattle and soy products etc.).

Why is reporting important?

Competitiveness: Companies that demonstrate transparency and a strong commitment in the fight against climate change are more competitive and able to anticipate future business opportunities
Visibility: CDP is an important database used by financial markets and leading sector analysts; the CDP scoring methodology is aligned with the Dow Jones Sustainability Index
Regulatory risk: the CDP remains a voluntary instrument to date but anticipates possible future legislative obligations, in a European context in which Directive 2014/95/EU starting from 01/01/2018 already obliges large companies to communicate information of a non-financial, including environmental impact
New markets: Companies that want to operate on a global market must demonstrate to their customers that they are ready to respond to increasingly stringent environmental and climate policies.
