CDP is a non-profit data aggregator and disclosure system that helps organizations measure and manage risks associated with climate change and resource scarcity. CDP was formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project and has played a leading role in driving corporate climate disclosure and action for more than 20 years. CDP issues organizational scores that are intended to incentivize companies to increase both their action and transparency.
