Each year, CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) assesses companies on the quality and level of ambition in dealing with environmental challenges. Through its plat­form it asks companies to provide a wide range of in­for­mation and data, which are then made available to in­ves­tors for further analysis.

The questionnaire additionally allows disclosure by companies producing, sourcing or using cocoa, coffee, and rubber.
