64 trillion reasons to act

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) reports are now out. On behalf of 534 institutional investors, holding $64 trillion in assets under management, this is the 8th year CDP has reported. From just 235 organisations in 2003, 2,500 now measure and disclose greenhouse gas emissions – and what their actions are to manage or mitigate the impacts – to the CDP.

Importantly there are some interesting new entries. Like Nestlé which débuts  in CDP’s leadership index for the first time.

CDP is relevant for any organisation or business. It asks 10 questions of major companies. One of these is what actions are the companies taking in the supply chain. Which means any organisation involved in delivering, or wanting to deliver, a product or service to 2,500 major corporations around the world should read the CDP.

That’s most of us and there are 64 trillion reasons to do it.
