Managing environmental impacts (CDP)
CDP is a not-for-profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts. Over the past 20 years we have created a system that has resulted in unparalleled engagement on environmental issues worldwide. Find out more about how we work.
Our vision and mission
We want to see a thriving economy that works for people and planet in the long term. We focus investors, companies, cities and governments on building a sustainable economy by measuring and acting on their environmental impact.
We default to transparency
We place accountability at our heart
We learn and improve
We succeed together
We must act urgently to prevent dangerous climate change and environmental damage. That starts by being aware of our impact so that investors, companies, cities and governments can make the right choices now.
In 2020, we celebrated our CDP’s 20th anniversary => watch our story now.
Cities A List 2022
122 cities across the globe have been named as leaders in environmental action and transparency in 2022 by CDP. For the first time, this includes cities from several countries in the Global South – often among those most affected by the impact of climate change.
The fifth annual cities A List recognizes cities that have received the highest score for their transparency and bold climate action, and celebrates their achievements, vision and commitment in the fight against climate change.
In a sign that serious and meaningful climate action is being taken right across the globe, the 2022 A List features cities in countries such as Peru, Ecuador, Cameroon, Turkey, Jordan and India – the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gases – for the first time.
Canadian cities on the list: Hamilton, St. Catharines, Burlington, Windsor, Thunder Bay, Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Fredericton, Halifax, Saanich, Nanaimo.
