CDP’s gold standard disclosure platform is being used by nearly 14,000 companies to report standardized environmental information to a range of capital markets and corporate stakeholders. For private companies, this is an opportunity to baseline environmental impacts, build awareness on best practice corporate disclosures and report this to multiple stakeholders.

Private companies disclosing to their requesting stakeholders through CDP can gain tangible business benefits:
  • Protect and improve your organization’s reputation
  • Get ahead of regulation
  • Build awareness on TCFD (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure) reporting
  • Uncover environmental risks and opportunities
  • Track and benchmark progress
  • Improve access to finance and engage with investors
Disclosing also allows organizations to identify opportunities for action. You can find out more via our Organizational Guide for Environmental Action.

While standardized environmental disclosure among publicly traded companies is more mainstream than for private companies, ambitious and meaningful climate action in capital markets requires transparency across public and private markets. From a private markets investor perspective, a portfolio company's CDP disclosure allows them to:
  • Prepare for emerging regulations
  • Understand portfolio risks and climate transition strategies
  • Benchmark portfolio companies’ environmental performance
  • Understand portfolio emissions and set emissions reduction goals
  • Support Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework
