In the 10 years that CDP has monitored disclosure practices, corporate activity has advanced to a stage where analysis of performance can aid investors who want to identify leading companies in carbon management. A performance band is a measure of the positive actions that the company has demonstrated through their CDP response. These include actions to promote climate change mitigation, adaptation and transparency. It is represented by a letter from A to E, (including an A- band). CDP acknowledges that the performance scoring process is evolving and recommends that investors review individual company disclosures in addition to performance rankings in order to gain the most comprehensive understanding of company performance.
