Carbon Disclosure Project 2011

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), to which PwC has been appointed global advisor and report writer for its fourth year, aims to provide investors with a unique analysis of how the world’s largest companies are responding to climate change.

In these terms, PwC has prepared 2011’s reports for the Global 500, S&P 500 and FTSE 350. This year’s reports show:

  • Companies are taking serious actions to drive ‘clean growth’, the decoupling of turnover and profits from carbon emissions growth, as well as embedding climate change into their organisational strategies and governance and are capitalising on associated emissions reductions, and other commercial opportunities.
  • A  significant shift in the way large US companies view and manage climate change. For the first time in CDP's 10-year history, a majority of S&P 500 responding companies report they now integrate climate change into core business strategy.
  • UK companies must set more ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets if the UK is to meet its Carbon Budgets.

Our PwC Carbon Disclosure Project web pages  include all of the 2011 reports, as well as industry specific reports for 10 sectors.
