Organizations are asked to respond  using CDP’s disclosure platform. This is the only way to provide the requested data to CDP and the requesting stakeholders.

CDP’s disclosure platform consists of the dashboard and the Online Response System (ORS):

1. The dashboard is a portal containing information regarding which questionnaires your organization is being requested to respond to and a link to activate these, your user account page.

2. The Online Response System (ORS) is where you input information into your questionnaire(s) and submit your response. 

If your organization is being requested to respond by investors and/or customers, CDP will notify you by email and will send you your access link to your company’s dashboard and the ORS. You will need to register for a CDP account to access the system. If you already have an account for our website, you can sign in using your existing password.

Public authorities and Crown corporations that do not receive a request from investors or stakeholders can also choose to respond to the Public Authorities Questionnaire. Contact to request access to the reporting platform.
