CDP Climate Change

CDP Reporting: Requests go to the Supply Chain

cdp climate change As a CDP silver climate change consultancy partner we help responding companies with the completion of their CDP questionnaire from data collection to final submission. With our expertise and as accredited provider, we can minimize efforts and resources at your end and ensure a successful participation with our solutions.

“Over the years, DFGE not only worked with us to generate reliable, validated and increasingly accurate carbon footprints, but also helped us to reduce the efforts of data collection from our worldwide subsidiaries. With FridaCarb, we are on a good way to further automatize the carbon footprint generation and integrate it into our global sustainability management. This brings us a lot closer to our main goal of continuously reducing our greenhouse gas emissions.”

What is CDP about?

Since its foundation in 2000 the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) became an authority for environmental reporting and rating. CDP’s database is today the biggest in this class and stores data and information of corporations and their CO2 emissions, climate risks and corporate reduction strategies worldwide. CDP ratings are incorporated in financial ratings as on the Deutsche Börse, Reuters or Google Finance.

What is being scored?

The CDP survey on climate change evaluates four aspects of sustainable economies:

  1. Judgements of management about risks and chances related to climate change
  2. Systematic collection and calculation of CO2 emissions (Carbon Accounting)
  3. Management strategies for reduction of CO2 emissions, risk management and potentials
  4. Corporate Governance according climate change

Supply chain integration?

Due to the transparency of the rating and its publication, a natural competition evolves. The total number of corporate participants in the CDP survey is steadily growing.
CDP follows the holistic approach to incorporate not only direct emissions but also emissions along the life cycle of products and services.
This involves also data from the supply chain partners. With its Supply Chain Program, participating companies can invite their partners along the supply chain to join the initative.
