We established CDP – then the Carbon Disclosure Project – over 15 years ago with a vision that one day businesses would be playing an active leadership role in combating climate change. Last December’s historic Paris Agreement set an unequivocal new direction for corporate climate action, and today our vision is becoming reality.
Since Paris, a growing number of major companies around the world have been showing a real commitment to playing their part in decarbonizing the economy. A new report launched today by the We Mean Business Coalition, along with CDP, shows just how significant that business contribution could be.
