What is the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)?

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is an international non-profit organization that aims at promoting companies and municipalities’ disclosures about their environmental impact and climate strategies.

Founded in London in 2000, the CDP has succeeded in encouraging the publication of companies' environmental footprints - which face a growing pressure from investors to be transparent. In the absence of clear regulatory standards for non-financial reporting, the CDP succeeds in collecting environmental data from thousands of companies every year. Today, it represents one of the largest and most accurate environmental databases in the world.

To date, the CDP supports more than 18,700 companies and more than 1,100 cities and states in assessing and managing risks and opportunities related to climate change, water security and deforestation.

What is the mission of the CDP?

The CDP has developed environmental reporting standards that allow financial markets and the general public to compare companies' ambition in terms of ecological transition.

In addition to standardizing data for climate reporting, the CDP became a rating agency and now evaluates companies' environmental performance. Each year, the CDP uses the information provided in annual reports to assign a score to businesses and municipalities. Various criteria are taken into consideration: such as fighting against climate change, sustainable management of water, forest conservation, and more.

These scores aim towards supporting the development of a transparent approach to environmental action.

The CDP rating methodology is completely independent.

What is CDP partner certification?

The CDP has launched an accreditation program for environmental solutions and service providers. Its goal is to help organizations which publish their data to identify trusted partners - those supporting the transition to a sustainable economy.

Accredited suppliers support organizations working with the CDP, helping them take the necessary steps to become environmental leaders.

Renewable energy experts, software platforms or audit bodies… CDP-accredited suppliers offer a wide range of skills and services that enable businesses and municipalities to implement their sustainable development strategies.

Through an accreditation process that includes reference checks, the CDP has created a global network of accredited solutions.

Greenly’s certification by the CDP

Greenly is proud to be a CDP accredited solution in the following six categories:

  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory;

  • Data collection and software services;

  • Environmental Target Setting;

  • Scenario Analysis;

  • Scope 3 Services;

  • Sustainability Communication.

What is the CDP partner accreditation process?

One of the main criteria for obtaining CDP certification is the collection of testimonials from at least six customer references - including at least three companies responding to the CDP annually and three large companies.

These references should provide information on the types of services requested, the quality of the services provided, the value for money and the intention to recommend the evaluated solution to other companies.
