  • Clear consideration of business-specific risks and potential opportunities related to climate change.
  • Good internal data management practices for understanding GHG emissions, including energy use.
The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is a global, investor-driven initiative which collects critical climate change data from the world's leading companies with the objective to inform the global market about investment risk and commercial opportunity and companies' climate change strategy. The information request in 2011 was sent to over 3,000 companies in over 60 countries on behalf of 551 institutional investors holding $71 trillion in assets under management. This is the fifth year of this initiative in India. Eight Indian financial institutions are part of the CDP global signatory investors seeking the information from industry on a voluntary basis. The CDP and its partners in India — CII and WWF — have engaged with the top 200 Indian companies (by market capitalisation) encompassing a diverse range of sectors.
