CDP is an international non-profit that drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. Working with institutional investors with assets of US$96 trillion, CDP leverages investor and buyer power to motivate companies to disclose and manage their environmental impacts. Over 7,000 companies with over 50% of global market capitalization disclosed environmental data through CDP in 2018. This is in addition to the over 750 cities, states and regions who disclosed, making CDP’s platform one of the richest sources of information globally on how companies and governments are driving environmental change. CDP’s China team conducts scientific benchmarking of overall company performance to provide a unified reporting platform for Chinese companies, and to identify companies that are leaders in sustainability and environmental protection. As a member of China Green Finance Committee, CDP also supports and participates in the research of important topics, such as environmental information disclosure, responsible investment, and risk analysis tools of listed companies.
