Carbon Disclosure Project: 'World's largest corporations seek clarity on climate change regulation'
Date:9/21/2008

0 companies will be launched Monday Sept. 22 at the New York headquarters of Merrill Lynch, one of CDP's global sponsors. The event will also feature a debate between senior climate change policy advisors to presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain.

Global 500 (FTSE Global Equity Index Series) Findings

The overall response rate among Global 500 companies was maintained at 77% in 2008. European and North American companies set the pace among constituents of the 'Global 500' with response rates to CDP's annual Questionnaire of 81% and 78% respectively. This compares to a response rate of just 41% in respect of Asian constituents of the Global 500. Out of the 383 companies that completed the Questionnaire, 58 companies (15%) were responding to CDP for the first time.

Regulation is also perceived as a catalyst for opportunities to:

  • Commercialize new products and services;
  • Generate additional income from emissions reduction programs via carbon credits; and
  • Invest in renewable energy projects.

The construction industry cites energy efficient buildings and energy upgrades as representing opportunities. The Technology, Media and Telecoms industry sees climate change bringing opportunities for travel substitution through teleconferencing and mobile devices to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Financial services firms recognize the long term impact climate change will have on the capital markets and cite the need to finance and invest in initiatives that could encourage ground-breaking changes in energy transmission and create a low
