Press Release: CDP’S Cities Funding Will Broaden Existing Research Partnership with C40
December 16, 2013 (New York, NY): CDP— a leading international NGO — today announced that it is greatly expanding its support for the world’s cities to report on their local greenhouse gas emissions and identify actionable solutions to combat climate change. CDP offers cities, companies and investors the only global environmental disclosure system, and a three-year, $4.1 million grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies will dramatically expand and enhance the existing CDP reporting platform and associated technical support for city governments. The resulting expansion will help more cities disclose and use the data they need to push toward more sustainable economies
The grant also marks the broadening of its relationship with CDP’s long-standing partner, the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40), to catalyze greenhouse gas reductions and standardize climate change reporting.
