CDP, formerly Carbon Disclosure Project, is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the global system for companies, cities, states and regions to measure, disclose, manage and share vital information on their environmental performance. CDP, voted number one climate research provider by investors, works with 827 institutional investors with assets of US$100 trillion, to motivate companies to disclose their impacts on the environment and natural resources and take action to reduce them. More than 5,600 companies, representing close to 60% global market capitalization, disclosed environmental information through CDP in 2015. CDP now holds the most comprehensive collection globally of primary corporate environmental data and puts these insights at the heart of strategic business, investment and policy decisions.

CDP’s forests program provides the only unified system for disclosing corporate deforestation risk exposure and management information across four key forest risk commodities: timber products, palm oil, soy and cattle products. CDP’s forests program acts on behalf of 365 signatory investors with US$22 trillion in assets who wish to understand how companies are addressing their exposure to deforestation risks. In 2015, 180 companies, worth over US$3tn, responded to CDP’s information request.
