What's CDP?

The CDP (formerly the "Carbon Disclosure Project") global disclosure system enables companies, cities, states and regions to measure and manage environmental impacts. This information is particularly significant for companies because institutional investors use disclosed data to inform their decision making, while big corporations take the information into account to analyse and engage with their supply chain.

Whether you're just starting out on your disclosure journey and want to use CDP's reporting framework to elevate your sustainability strategy, or you're a seasoned CDP reporting organisation looking to make the "A-list", South Pole's experts can help raise your organisation's climate change, forest or water security score.

As well as being one of CDP's gold climate change consultancy partners, we've also been delivering climate solutions since 2006. As an organisation recognised for its CDP and sustainability expertise, we'll provide you with the best access to specialist webinars, insightful briefings and our global consulting team.

"We are delighted that South Pole have renewed their partnership with us to become a CDP global gold accredited climate change consultancy partner. With their expertise in providing innovative solutions to mitigate climate risk and achieve climate goals, we are confident that their services will be of great value to companies responding to CDP."

- Paul Robins, CDP's Global Head of Partnerships.

How can we help?

Understand the score

South Pole's gap analysis examines your previous year's questionnaire to identify main response gaps in comparison to the most recent CDP scoring methodology and guidance. If you did not submit a response we can assess together where your gaps might be.

Complete the questionnaire

South Pole prepares a draft version of the full CDP carbon, water or land questionnaire for your review.

Simulate your score

We score your 2021 CDP questionnaire by applying the 2021 CDP scoring methodology to estimate the potential final score. A scoring simulation is recommended to understand at question level where your company could be losing most of its points.
