In 2016, 397 cities reported that climate change does present an economic opportunity and identified over 1,000 opportunities. 270 of these cities identified the development of new business industries, such as clean tech, as an opportunity.
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.
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."
Scope 1 and 2 emissions from 482 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.
CDP has created a 'clean & complete dataset' for the 2015 Carbon Action sample of companies - a group of the highest emitting public companies from the most energy-intensive industries. The full dataset covers Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions from 2009-2014 and 10 Categories of Scope 3 emissions for the most recent accounting year (excluded from this public dataset). Production involved applying methods for the quality assessment of self-reported data and integration of CSR report data, as well as the development and application of models to estimate emissions for companies that do not report them.
This public dataset represents a subset of industries, companies and years of the full version. All users can interact with estimates and model details. The full dataset is freely available to CDP's investor signatories or can be purchased by others.
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.
In 2016, over 3,000 mitigation actions were disclosed. Cities are taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in cities. Activities are tagged by sector and cities provide detailed descriptions of each activity. Some cities also provide estimates of the total anticipated lifetime emissions that will be reduced from each activity.
