CDP Climate Change

Since 2007, the NBI has been the local partner to the CDP. From its initiation the CDP has successfully managed to push climate change into the mainstream business thinking. Consequently, the CDP remains the global standard for measurement and reporting of climate change information and the biggest repository of greenhouse gas emission information from the business sector.

The CDP requests information on climate change risks, opportunities and integration from JSE 100 companies on behalf of 827 institutional investors representing more than $100 trillion in assets. CDP climate change helps companies to manage their carbon emissions and protect themselves from climate risks. It also helps investors to understand the climate change risks associated with their portfolios.

The CDP in South Africa continues to help companies integrate climate change into their overall strategy and governance structures. Recently there has been a progressive shift towards focusing on a company’s performance in terms of their climate change actions over and above their transparency around this issues.

Even if your company does not receive an information request for CDP on behalf of investor signatories, your company can still respond to CDP climate change to better understand your climate change risks and opportunities.

The success of the CDP climate change programme has led the CDP to expand into other programmes including: forestry, supply chain and water. See CDP water for more information on the NBI’s work in this field.

The NBI has over the years produced a series of reports and infographics to highlight the key findings from the CDP South Africa sample. Click on the links to access the reports.

Annual process and timelines:

1 February: CDP sends out its annual information request to companies worldwide, after which the online response system is open for data input from disclosing companies.

30 June: Deadline for companies to submit their CDP response.

October: Publicly disclosed data will be published on the CDP website.
