Who is requesting my environmental data via CDP?

Stakeholders are increasingly requesting environmental information through CDP, including investors, large purchasing organizations (“customers”), banks (“lenders”), and membership initiatives. This data is used by these stakeholders to inform decisions and drive environmental action.

In 2022, CDP has launched a new program for public authorities with a pilot in North America. Public authorities will receive a request from investor signatories.

In 2022, 680+ signatories with over US$131 trillion in assets are requesting information from over 10,400 companies. At the same time, 20 investor signatories representing US$8.1 trillion in assets have signed on to encourage participation specifically from public authorities and local governments as part of CDP’s first Municipal Disclosure Campaign.

During the 2022 cycle, you can view which stakeholders are requesting your organization’s disclosure via your dashboard.

To read more about the stakeholders who request disclosure, how they use data, or for more information on how to become a requesting stakeholder, please view our CDP investor signatories and CDP supply chain member pages.

What information am I being asked to disclose?
