Each year Canada’s largest publicly traded companies are invited to respond to the information request they receive from the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). Respondents disclose their carbon strategies, their corporate arrangements for oversight of climate change and environmental risk management, their perceptions of risks and opportunities, their carbon budget, and actions under way or planned to manage the risks and seize the opportunities arising from climate change. The information they provide is invaluable to institutional investors, for the purpose of assessing a company's commitment and performance in dealing with the implications of climate change, and to policy-makers for assessing the degree of corporate engagement and state of readiness. This report provides the highlights of the 2010 CDP responses and sheds light on trends in disclosure of corporate actions on climate change in Canada. This report and all of the public responses from corporations are available to download free of charge from www.cdproject.net.
