About CDP and scoring

CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project, is a registered charity and the information it collects is publicly available. CDP enables companies, cities, states and regions to measure and manage their environmental impacts. ROCKWOOL Group has reported annually to CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project, since 2010 and the requirements have become stricter every year.

More than 6,000 global companies responded to CDP this year. Companies are scored on categories covering emissions management, governance and strategy, together with risk and opportunity management.
