CDP is an international non-profit that drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. Voted number one climate research provider by investors and working with institutional investors with assets of US$96 trillion, we leverage investor and buyer power to motivate companies to disclose and manage their environmental impacts. Over 7,000 companies with over 50% of global market capitalization disclosed environmental data through CDP in 2018. This is in addition to the over 750 cities, states and regions who disclosed, making CDP’s platform one of the richest sources of information globally on how companies and governments are driving environmental change. CDP, formerly Carbon Disclosure Project, is a founding member of the We Mean Business Coalition.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to lead CDP’s project management and pledging system work for the European Climate Pact Secretariat. CDP Europe is one of the operators of the European Climate Pact Secretariat. The European Climate Pact is an EU-wide initiative inviting people, communities and organisations to participate in climate action and build a greener Europe. Individuals, governments, businesses and organisations can get involved in the European Climate Pact in many ways. One of them is “pledging” i.e. committing to concrete action – whether small sustainable choices or big, bold projects – and sharing ideas and initiatives with others to inspire them to join.
