CDP is an international non-profit that drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. Voted number one climate research provider by investors and working with institutional investors with assets of US$100 trillion, we leverage investor and buyer power to motivate companies to disclose and manage their environmental impacts. Over 6,300 companies with some 55% of global market capitalization disclosed environmental data through CDP in 2017. This is in addition to the over 500 cities and 100 states and regions who disclosed, making CDP’s platform one of the richest sources of information globally on how companies and governments are driving environmental change. CDP, formerly Carbon Disclosure Project, is a founding member of the We Mean Business Coalition.
The Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) is an international consortium of business and environmental NGOs.

We do this by offering companies a framework for reporting environmental information with the same rigour as financial information. Collectively, we aim to contribute to more sustainable economic, social and environmental systems.
Entreprises pour l’Environnement (EpE), created in 1992, gathers around 40 French and international large companies from all sectors of the economy, who work together to better integrate environment into both their strategies and their day-to-day management.
