By Anmar Frangoul, CNBC

The CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, is a not-for-profit charity. It operates a “global disclosure system” which allows businesses, states, regions and cities to “measure and manage” their impact on the environment. Paul Dickinson is the executive chair of the CDP. He told CNBC’s Sustainable Energy that his organization represented over 600 investors with $90 trillion of assets, as well as more than 100 purchasing organizations “with trillions of purchasing authority.”

One major project the CDP is involved with is called the RE100, a global initiative made up of some of the world’s biggest companies, all committed to 100 percent renewable electricity. Businesses that are part of the RE100 include AppleDanoneGoldman Sachs and the Lego Group. Click here to read more and to view a 2-minute video about CDP’s outstanding work.
