The findings of the report are based on direct disclosures to CDP in 2014 from companies around the world.
London: Companies reporting to the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) are showing clearly that major corporations not only recognize climate-related regulatory risks and opportunities, but are proactively planning for them and are outpacing their governments in thinking ahead.
These findings are based on direct disclosures to CDP in 2014 from companies around the world. They provide the first global analysis of corporate use of carbon pricing drawn from information provided directly by companies themselves.
This report synthesizes information from those disclosures that refers explicitly to use of a price on carbon, or business implications of carbon pricing policies.
The data and disclosure excerpts in this report provide key topical insights on corporate attitudes toward emerging cap-and-trade systems and carbon taxes; and they serve as powerful evidence of a global corporate consensus that carbon will be priced.
