Carbon Disclosure Project

August 19, 2008

ICLEI (Local Governments for Sustainability) and the Carbon Disclosure Project
(CDP) is teaming up with 30 large American cities, including New York
City, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Denver, to help them voluntarily
report GHG emissions and other climate data. The cities will use
ICLEI’s Local Government Operations Protocol
and software tools to assess their GHG emissions from fire, ambulance,
and police services, municipal buildings, and waste transport. The CDP
is an independent, not-for-profit organization which operates a
coordinating secretariat for institutional investors that seeks
information about opportunities and business risks related to climate
change. Currently CDP has 3,000 member companies and is the largest
repository of corporate GHG emissions in the world. Read more about the partnership between ICLEI and the CDP.
