Optimize CDP disclosure with expert-led quantitative and qualitative CDP data support from UL Solutions.

Sunset on the coast

The Carbon Disclosure Project, more commonly known as CDP, is a not-for-profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions. This environmental reporting standard tracks the worldwide increase in CDP disclosures and includes one of the largest and most comprehensive datasets on corporate and city action environmental impacts.  

Whether you’ve been asked to disclose through CDP by your customers and investors or if you are planning to disclose, are already in the process of disclosing or need assistance with CDP questionnaires, UL Solutions can help you realize the global value of an accurate CDP submission.

Providing information on your environmental impact, including climate change, supply chain, water security, forests and more, can benefit your organization by providing mandatory customer and investor requests that:

Additionally, voluntary CDP disclosures can help:

  • Peer and industry advancement
  • Transparency to stakeholders
  • Identify business opportunities
  • Stay on top of evolving regulations

UL Solutions has a strong partnership with CDP as a gold-accredited solutions provider.  An engagement with our team of experts provides valuable services and reviews of your CDP data, plus the identification of short-term and long-term enhancements that can help to improve your CDP disclosure.
