CDP Global Dataset

The CDP is a global organization that works with companies, investors, and governments to measure and manage environmental impacts, including carbon emissions, water use, and deforestation. The CDP Climate Change Scores evaluate companies based on their level of disclosure and action on climate change-related issues. The scores are based on a comprehensive questionnaire that asks companies about their greenhouse gas emissions, climate-related risks and opportunities, and strategies for reducing their environmental impact. The CDP then assesses this information to provide companies with a score between A and D-, with A being the highest score and D- being the lowest. The scores also identify companies that are leaders in sustainability and environmental performance. The datasets are available in Excel spreadsheets for each year of the data.
