CDP’s forests program targets the largest companies globally, collecting data on their management of deforestation risk through the lens of key agricultural drivers of deforestation (timber, palm oil, soy, cattle products & biofuels). In 2015, 700 companies are requested to respond to the program. The request is issued on behalf of 298 investor signatories with $19 trillion in assets.
Dataset of risk data from respondents to CDP’s forests program in 2013 and 2014. Includes data on company risk assessment processes, as well as the reputational, regulatory and operational risks they identified. This dataset excludes private responders.
Please note that not all companies report on all forest risk commodities. This may be due to the company submitting a partial disclosure or because only a limited number of the commodities are relevant to their business.
Scope 1 and 2 emissions from 403 of the largest 500 companies in the world by market capitalization. Also contains CDP response status. The dataset includes information on a company's sector, country and response status as well as the ticker symbol and ISIN number. For disclosing companies, information includes CDP Disclosure and Performance scores.
In 2016, 189 global cities publicly disclosed their annual city-wide emissions. Includes information about how cities measured emissions (primary protocol), as well as why emissions rose/fell since prior reporting period.
Cities are increasingly reporting that they are powered by renewable electricity. CDP holds information from over 570 of the world's cities and over 100 cities are now getting at least 70% of their electricity from renewable sources such as hydro, geothermal, solar and wind.
This dataset has been compiled of data reported by cities in 2015, 2016 and 2017 in response to our annual questionnaire. Cities responded to the question: "Please indicate the energy mix of your electricity consumed at the city-wide scale."
Cities house half the world’s population but represent almost two-thirds of global energy demand and 70% of carbon emissions from the energy sector. Therefore, transition to a sustainable economy will be won or lost in our cities. Explore how cities across the globe are working to measure their city-wide emissions, a vital first step towards taking ambitious climate action.
CDP is working in partnership with The Climate Group to provide the world’s first global platform for states and regions to measure, manage and disclose their greenhouse gas emissions. CDP and The Climate Group are united in their firm belief on the vital role that state and regional governments play in driving climate action and delivering sustainable economies that avoid dangerous climate change and leads to a net-zero emissions world. Use this data to explore GHG emissions from state and regional governments.
We’re delighted to announce that in 2017 we’ve seen a ten-fold increase in the number of cities disclosing their activity from six years ago, with a 20-fold increase in the number of climate actions underway. A tipping point is emerging, as cities increasingly recognize sustainability investments as essential to creating jobs and making their cities more attractive places to live and work.
