For any organisation, disclosing accurate emissions and sustainability data is an important step towards building investor and stakeholder trust, complying with legislation and improving carbon management.
CDP is an independent not for profit organisation that runs a global disclosure system that enables companies to monitor, measure and manage their environmental impacts. Over 9,500 companies disclose information through CDP, and it allows hundreds of investors with over $100 trillion in assets to make informed decisions.
The demand for organisations to monitor and disclose information about their climate change and environmental performance is growing; this is a key driver of actionable change and progress in carbon management.
Independent verification from LRQA assures the accuracy, credibility and completeness of the information and data a company discloses. Through verification and disclosure to CDP, organisations can take a crucial step towards effective carbon management and reduction.
Higher CDP scores and inclusion in CDP A-List
Third-party verification drives higher CDP disclosure, awareness, total management and leadership scores.
Meet market demand
The demand for accurate information is growing among internal and external stakeholders because it allows them to understand an organisation’s strategy, risks, and growth opportunities.
Drive continual improvements
Independent verification supports the continual improvement of internal processes, which can help deliver cost savings and efficiencies.
Improve public perception
Independent assurance of publicly reported declarations demonstrates your commitment to fighting climate change and promoting sustainability. It also attracts younger talent, many of whom want to work for an employer that positively impacts the planet.
Ensure regulatory compliance
Market mechanisms, such as the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) and California Air Resources Board (CARB), are growing in popularity and depend on the accuracy, integrity and robustness of reported data and information.
