What is CDP and why does it matter?

CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) is a global non-profit working to secure a thriving economy that works for people and planet over the long term. CDP runs the global disclosure system that enables companies, cities, states and regions to measure and manage their environmental impacts.

Often described as the ‘gold standard’ of corporate environmental reporting, CDP’s disclosure questionnaire is fully aligned with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures’ (TCFD) recommendations.

Disclosure through CDP provides a foundation for achieving ambitious corporate action across five areas:

  • Climate change
  • Forests
  • Water security
  • Biodiversity
  • Plastics

By completing CDP's questionnaires, companies will identify ways to help them manage their own environmental risks and opportunities as well as providing vital information back to their customers and investors, and to the market through research, insights and financial products and services.


What are the benefits of disclosure?

Disclosure through CDP is voluntary but can bring many benefits to your company, including:

  • Protecting your reputation
  • Tracking and benchmarking progress
  • Uncovering risks and opportunities
  • Gaining a competitive advantage
  • Getting ahead of regulation
  • Communicating with stakeholders, including customers and investors

How we can help

We help support your organisation at every stage – from understanding which questions apply to you, to gathering information from your team, to preparing a submission that will fit the criteria.

We know and understand the CDP scoring system and know what it is looking for. We understand the current best practice and tiering and can help guide you through the questionnaire. To help prepare you for the score you can expect, we can conduct a mock scoring assessment.

If you are considering a CDP submission, you will need a carbon footprint completed beforehand – read more about our footprinting services here, which include full scope 1, 2 and 3 calculations.

Our unique approach

We don't treat CDP as a tick-box exercise – we really get under the hood of your organisation. We are honest, acting as a critical friend - and we'll push you to do better. We won’t accept just what you’re doing now – we'll always ask for more.

Our CDP experience

We’ve been supporting Kingfisher PLC (B&Q, Screwfix, Tradepoint & more) for over a decade, acting as a critical friend and preparing responses. We started managing Kingfisher's Climate Change CDP submission in 2017, and have taken it from a B in 2016, to an A- in 2023.

We started supporting Kingfisher on its Forests disclosure in 2020 and have taken it from a D/C to a B in 2023.

We have also supported clients on CDP’s Biodiversity and Plastics disclosures.
