Corporate reporting of climate and environmental matters in the European Union
Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)
About the CPD course
The European Union introduced the Directive 2014/95/EU on the Disclosure of Non-Financial and Diversity Information (NFR Directive) as a key element of the EU’s Sustainable Finance Action Plan and is designed to enhance corporate transparency. Companies are obliged to disclose sustainability information across a number of content categories including; their business models; policies; risks; outcomes and KPIs. This course focuses on climate and environmental matters as required under the NFR Directive and explains what companies are expected to disclose.
The Carbon Disclosure Project is a global organization, with regional offices and local partners spanning 50 countries. There are now companies, cities, states and regions from over 90 countries that disclose to CDP. CDP runs the global environmental disclosure system. Each year CDP supports thousands of companies, cities, states and regions to measure and manage their risks and opportunities on climate change, water security and deforestation. Over the last two decades the CDP have created a system that has resulted in unparalleled engagement on environmental issues worldwide.
