Off the back of the ‘Reimagining Disclosure’ consultation that CDP carried out in 2017, the finalised 2018 questionnaire content is now available . The questionnaires have changed quite significantly compared to the consultation so it’s important that companies start to think about CDP now, to ensure they respond well to the changes.
This week saw the launch event for 2017 CDP disclosures. This is not only an important time of year for our clients to find out how they have performed, but is also a time to take stock of the global trend in emissions performance and management.
CDP 2017 wrapped up at the of July. With the end of reporting season, focus now turns to next year’s disclosure. Each year CDP updates questionnaires in an effort to increase the quality and transparency of company disclosures, as well as to keep up with changing best practice in sustainability reporting.
Businesses globally have a wide range of sustainability frameworks, standards and benchmarks, they can report to - CDP, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) - and the list goes on.
