IEN Webinar: How CDP Drives Environmental Action Through Its Investor Signatory Program

Date: Thursday, January 14, 2021

This webinar provides an overview of CDP’s Investor Signatory program and how participating asset owners and managers can leverage our disclosure database to support sustainability and climate-related investment goals.

For over two decades, CDP has been driving environmental action through its disclosure system supported by its investor signatory network. CDP requests environmental disclosure data from thousands of organizations on behalf of its global group of 550+ Investor Signatories. The disclosure process allows organizations to improve transparency, and Investor Signatories are then able to use the data disclosed by companies on climate change, deforestation, and water security to engage with corporates and inform their investment decisions. Furthermore, CDP’s climate change dataset is fully TCFD aligned, allowing investors to access standardized and comparable TCFD-aligned data to identify risks and opportunities. 

Participants of this session will learn:

  • What it means to be a CDP Investor Signatory
  • The cutting-edge ESG data and research reports available to Signatories
  • The various opportunities for Signatories to participate in our corporate engagement campaigns
