CDP Reporting with First Climate

The Paris Agreement, new legal regulations or the introduction of carbon-based tax collection schemes in various countries – climate change and international climate policy are increasingly influencing the market environment for companies. The topic also plays an important role for investors and financial service providers. They are increasingly analyzing companies’ decarbonisation metrics within their investment portfolios and use the results as a benchmark for their investment decisions.

CDP responded to these developments by making important changes to its questionnaires. Successful climate change mitigation and carbon management schemes are now more than ever important prerequisites for companies which aim to secure a good CDP scoring. In addition to the introduction of sector-specific questionnaires, CDP now also puts more emphasis on the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) by integrating these recommendations into their questionnaires. Companies can now also improve their scoring by implementing science-based targets, which enable them to adapt to the goals of the Paris Agreement. All in all, these changes create now challenges but also open up new opportunities for your company to address your stakeholders with optimized CDP scorings.

First Climate continues its long-established partnership with CDP as it once again becomes a CDP Silver Renewable Energy Partner for the DACH Region in 2021. As an accredited provider First Climate supports companies in developing and implementing sustainable strategies for the use of renewable energy. Companies that report to the CDP and want to switch to renewable energy will find an experienced partner in First Climate.
