The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) aims to accelerate solutions to climate change by putting relevant information at the heart of business, policy and investment decisions. The project works by collecting and distributing high quality information to motivate investors, corporations, governments and the general public to take action to prevent dangerous climate change. Since its launch in 2000, CDP has assembled the largest database of primary corporate climate change information in the world.Globally, CDP acts on behalf of 534 institutional investors, holding US$64 trillion in assets, together with major businesses and government departments for whom CDP approaches supply chains. On their behalf in 2010, CDP sent questionnaires to more than 4,700 organisations. At the latest count 3,000 organisations across the world’s major economies have responded to these requests. This report provides detailed analysis of responses received from the 40 largest Irish businesses on the Irish stock exchange (largest by capitalisation and referred to as “ISEQ 40” throughout this report); the largest organisations in Ireland involved in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (referred to as “EU-ETS Companies”); other Irish responding organisations that are neither ISEQ listed nor part of the EU-ETS (referred to as “Other Respondents”) and the largest inward investors in Ireland.
