Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)

The goal of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) organisation is to collect and publish worldwide environmental data, for example relating to carbon emissions.

What's it all about?

  • The CDP publishes worldwide environmental data
  • The focus is on climate protection, water quality and forest use
  • METRO is a member of the CDP

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is an independent organisation that gathers and publishes worldwide environmental data from companies, cities and municipalities. The organisation was founded in London in 2000 as the Carbon Disclosure Project and has simply been known as CDP since 2013. The goal of the CDP is to create transparency and to publish relevant data in three topic areas: greenhouse gas emissions, water quality and forest use.

CDP makes carbon emissions transparent

Once a year, the organisation uses standardised surveys to gather data from companies on carbon emissions, climate risks, as well as reduction targets and strategies. CDP compiles the information into a database and rates the participating companies. METRO has already received several high ratings for measures that contribute to reducing carbon emissions and developing a low-carbon economy.

Sustainable and responsible management is part of METRO’s ESG strategy. What METRO is doing to tackle climate change and bring a competitive advantage to its HoReCa customers. Read more now.

The EU wants to be carbon-neutral by 2050; METRO by 2040. But hotels, restaurants and catering companies can also reduce their carbon footprint.
