CDP & GCP form alliance

July 2012

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and Global Canopy Programme (GCP) have formed an alliance that will see the GCP’s Forest Footprint Disclosure Project (FFD) merge with CDP over the next two years. The two organisations say the move will bring under one roof corporate disclosure on the earth’s atmosphere, water and forests, creating the world’s largest and most comprehensive natural capital disclosure system. Andrew Mitchell, executive director of GCP and chairman of FFD, said: “Companies have huge impacts on forests, whether they know it or not. Destroying forests contributes around 15% of global carbon emissions and undermines the world’s ability to feed itself by degrading land and harming water supplies. By bringing forest disclosure together with carbon and water, we’re going to make it easier for companies to understand how they are impacting on the world’s natural capital – and how they can do something about it”
