EcoAct partners with Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)!

Paris, France – March 21, 2016 – As of February 2016, EcoAct is now an accredited climate change consultancy partner for CDP.

A leading consultancy working with key public and private actors on innovative strategies to reduce environmental footprints, EcoAct is committed to working with CDP to encourage high quality disclosure of climate change related data from global corporations.

CDP works to transform the way the world does business to prevent dangerous climate change and protect natural resources and holds the largest collection globally of self reported climate change, water and forest-risk data. Through CDP’s global system companies, investors and cities are better able to mitigate risk, capitalize on opportunities and make investment decisions that drive action towards a more sustainable world.

EcoAct provides relevant, high-quality climate change solutions to a number of different businesses and stakeholders, including companies that disclose to CDP,” says Paul Robins, Head of Partnerships at CDP, “and we are delighted to welcome EcoAct as a new CDP consultancy partner for France in 2016.”

Beyond providing the Response Check service to CDP investor climate change responding companies, EcoAct looks forward to collaborating with CDP on the Commit to Action initiatives, such as Science Based Targets, for meaningful action on climate change.

Last December, worldwide governments sent a clear signal to corporations through the Paris Agreement that low carbon investments and comprehensive climate strategies must expand to pave the road to carbon neutrality and 100% renewables.

 “At EcoAct, we have been engaged on this path for 10 years, supporting our clients to capitalise on synergies between their core business and sustainability to advance towards a better future for all. Thus, we are driven by the belief that a low carbon, yet competitive economy is at hand” asserts Thierry Fornas, President, EcoAct.

If a decarbonized world is now tangible and technologically possible, it has never been as urgent to take concrete action to that purpose. Organisations such as CDP and EcoAct provide accessible, tailored solutions for all types of players. Transforming a business into a climate resilient, virtuous one to build a sustainable planet is EcoAct’s pledge.

Animated by the challenges of a 2°C world, EcoAct is excited to share this journey with CDP and to reinforce our consulting services thanks to this partnership.

Any companies or organisations looking to engage with CDP reporting are invited to get in contact (details below).
