Back on Nov. 18, 2010, Chevrolet set a bold goal – engage communities across America in preventing 8M metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the earth’s atmosphere. We knew it would take about five years and upwards of about $40 million, but driving a cleaner energy future is something we believe in.

CDP provides a global system for companies to measure, disclose and share information about their climate change risks, strategies, emissions and reduction initiatives. Now in its 14th year, data is collected on behalf of 822 institutional investors – an increase of 100 participants over the last two years – spanning 2000 companies in 50 countries, representing $95 trillion in invested assets. Companies are scored on the extent to which they disclose information (on a scale of 0-100) and on their performance in terms of emissions reduction activities (E to A).
We know addressing climate change makes business sense. Further proof can be found in CDP rankings. Each year CDP scores companies for the quality of climate change-related information they disclose to investors and the global marketplace. If the company is a leader, they get on the S&P Climate Disclosure Leadership Index.
