The goal of the CDP is to provide investors worldwide with a tool for evaluating how leading companies assess and respond to the risks and opportunities associated with climate change. To this end, CDP performs an annual survey of how the world's leading companies are managing climate change. The survey has been conducted in Spain since 2008.
