This year, CDP – backed by 534 institutional investors representing more than US$ 64 trillion in assets under management – sent questionnaires to more than 4,500 of the world’s largest corporations requesting information on their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, on the potential climate-related risks and opportunities to their businesses and on their strategies for managing these risks and opportunities. The corporations’ individual responses, as well as regional reports assessing these responses, have been published in almost 30 countries around the world and are freely available at www.cdproject.net. The CDP continues to be the global leader in capturing and analysing data that records the business response to climate change; whether it be risks and opportunities, absolute emissions levels, performance over time or governance. This report, prepared by Incite Sustainability on behalf of the National Business Initiative (NBI), analyses the responses from the 74 of the 100 largest corporations on the South African JSE that chose to voluntarily participate in the CDP 2010.
