Carbon Disclosure Project announces WSP as a U.S. Consultancy Partner | 21st Oct 2010
WSP Environment & Energy (WSP) is delighted to announce that it has been selected as a U.S. consultancy partner to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
Commenting on the appointment, Chris Jones, WSP's Global Head of Climate Change & Sustainability Strategies said: "We're proud to be recognized in this way by CDP. They are the undisputed leader in delivering a consistent global framework for organizations to voluntarily measure and disclose their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and climate change strategies."
The CDP is in its 10th year of evaluating corporations on their climate change risks, opportunities, impacts and associated business strategies and performance. It is a non-governmental organization reporting on behalf of over 500 institutional investors. In 2010, 82% of the 500 largest companies in the world responded to CDP's annual questionnaire, and 3,000 organizations in total made a disclosure.
As a specialist consultancy in environmental, sustainability and energy management issues, WSP is now referenced by CDP as a U.S. approved partner to help reporting organizations measure and manage their GHG emissions.
"CDP is delighted to add WSP as a silver consultancy partner in the U.S." said Paul Dickinson, Executive Chairman of the Carbon Disclosure Project. "WSP has demonstrated both a strategic and a practical approach to helping organizations understand, manage and reduce their impacts. The depth and quality of WSP's engineering expertise makes them a valuable contributor as a consultancy partner."
WSP's Chris Jones confirms that this is an exciting time to become a CDP partner: "With each year that passes, CDP raises the bar and becomes more sophisticated in the way it evaluates companies. At WSP we believe we have both the commercial insight and the technical skills to help organizations execute viable sustainability strategies that have a positive influence on their business performance, their stakeholders and on the natural environment around them."
