Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has created the world’s largest database of primary corporate greenhouse gas emissions and has provided a vehicle for organizations to report their environmental data since 2000. They collect data from more than 2,500 companies in over 60 countries – including Microsoft. The importance and use of the CDP information has grown dramatically over the past few years, and its significance cannot be overstated. Reporting provides the foundation for companies to understand their impact and then begin the process of uncovering ways to lower costs, identify efficiency measures, and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Last September the CDP announced it would upgrade its online Carbon Reporting System, turning to leading technology and consulting companies -- Microsoft, SAP, and Accenture. On Feb. 17, CDP launched its new Carbon Reporting System.
