Since 2000, the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has, on behalf of institutional investors, challenged the world’s largest companies to measure and report their carbon emissions. This is done to encourage them to integrate climate change considerations into their business strategy. This year, CDP sent questionnaires to more than 4,500 of the world’s largest corporations. In line with what are seen to be the key elements of an effective climate change strategy, the CDP questionnaire focuses on four areas: climate change governance practices; risk and opportunity identification; GHG emissions accounting; and performance. Incite Sustainability, on behalf of the National Business Initiative (NBI), has analysed the responses from the 74 of the 100 largest corporations on the South African JSE that chose to voluntarily participate in CDP 2010. The outcomes of this analysis are presented in the CDP South Africa 2010 report. This report, along with the corporations’ individual responses and the other regional reports, is freely available at www.cdproject.net.
