Through this partnership, Antea Group has been accredited to service companies disclosing to CDP’s climate change program, and will work to support CDP in broadening and enhancing corporate reporting and disclosure across targeted sectors and technical domains.
CDP, launched in 2000, collates and publishes information for over 4,500 organizations in more than 75 countries around the world. Each year, CDP distributes annual disclosure questionnaires to thousands of companies worldwide, requesting information on governance, performance, risks, and opportunities as they relate to climate change, water, and forest resources. This standardized reporting platform provides valuable environmental insight to institutional investors, policymakers and various other stakeholders of participating companies, and has been a vehicle for encouraging action towards business environmental sustainability. “Antea Group has demonstrated a clear commitment to encouraging high quality disclosure of environmental data from leading global corporations,” said Paul Robins, CDP’s Head of Corporate Partnerships. “Of note, the firm has displayed strong credentials in regards to environmental reporting services across multiple sectors and we are delighted to welcome them as a partner.”
Since 2008, Antea Group’s Sustainability Practice has provided clients with CDP disclosure and corporate reporting services ranging from first time response strategy and external message development, to gap assessment and refinement for repeat disclosures. Recognition as an accredited CDP USA Consultancy Partner will allow Antea Group to better assist leading multinational corporations through direct access to CDP resources, such as the standardized, high-level Response Check service. This partnership also provides Antea Group with the ability to leverage its practical expertise to support reporting frameworks that properly align investor needs with business realities. “This select partnership with CDP is an acknowledgment of our firm providing exemplary Sustainability services to many of the world’s leading companies,” said Nick Martin, Sustainability Practice Lead and Senior Consultant at Antea Group. “We look forward to bringing our unique Better Business, Better World® perspectives to directly support CDP’s mission and continue to assist our clients with meaningful data collection and disclosures.”
