CDP can improve communication with your stakeholders
It’s no longer enough for your business to simply list its climate change initiatives. Investors want to know what your long-term climate strategy is. They want to understand how resilient your business model is to climate-related risk. Your competitors are upping their game - producing integrated reports, setting targets, and taking a leadership stance on sustainability issues. Consumers are increasingly environmentally aware. They are demanding transparency and rigour in the goods and services they buy. Environmental regulation is increasing and governments expect you to align with national and global sustainability targets.
In short, your organisation needs to be doing and saying more about their approach to sustainability.
Use CDP disclosure as a roadmap to improving performance
Disclosing to the Climate Disclosure Project (CDP) is the perfect place to start. This recognised international disclosure system offers your business the opportunity to tell its sustainability story, have its performance benchmarked and understand the actions it should be taking next.
Whether you respond to CDP voluntarily, or because investors have mandated you to, responding to CDP challenges your business on why you aren’t doing more on climate change.
Are climate change issues being considered from Board level down? Are climate change risks and opportunities clear and being addressed? Is climate change embedded into your business strategy and remuneration structure? How far and how fast are you reducing your carbon emissions and wider environmental impacts? Have you set targets and are they rigorous enough to make a real-world impact? How often and to whom are you communicating your environmental efforts?
In short – disclosing to CDP helps businesses to up their game; and takes their stakeholders on the journey with them.
Don’t believe us? Over 9000 companies on the worlds stage are using CDP to their advantage; why not join this list of top performers?

I was impressed with the thoroughness and level of detail that our data set was analysed in. Presenting an extensive data set in an easy to use format was of great value in communicating the outcome of the work internally, and prioritising areas of the supply chain for future action.

Avieco supported us in collating and organising data to develop a robust risk assessment process. They have been easy to work with, responsive to our requirements and pragmatic in their solutions.
Gijs Voskuilen, Head of Corporate Responsibility, Bunzl
Avieco has been the preferred environmental consultant since the beginning of our journey to become a sustainable company. Dentsu Aegis has worked with Avieco’s experts on various areas, such as carbon footprint reporting and assurance support, and recently also advised us how to switch our global network to renewable electricity. The team’s expertise on environmental sustainability is impressive, and the work delivered is always of highest standard.
Lars Holm, Global Senior Manager CSR, Dentsu Aegis Network
Avieco informatively led us through the processes needed to reduce our carbon footprint. With their clear and concise advice we have been able to effectively reduce our energy and waste levels. Avieco made the complex notion of energy efficiency into a manageable and achievable reality
Nigel Pink, Group Engineering Manager, Dominos UK & Ireland Ltd
Avieco delivered exactly the workshop we needed to get our sustainability team and regional leads on the same page when it comes to ‘market-based’ reporting. It’s a challenging area to tackle for a global business – particularly when we operate in a number of markets where there is little or no choice in terms of energy purchasing. Avieco has given us the knowledge and tools to ensure we get our disclosures right – they really exceeded my expectations for what we could achieve in one afternoon!

We get that change is not easy. But we must be brave, challenge old ways, set new habits, embrace new thinking.
