Microsoft Partners with Carbon Disclosure Project to build Climate Change Data and Reporting Platform

  • Comments 0

Today at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York, Microsoft and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) announced the creation of the next generation online solution for the CDP’s global climate change data system. Microsoft will provide its software platform technology for all aspects of data capture within the new version of the CDP system, which will enable companies to report more detailed climate change information.

Measurement, reporting and verification of a company’s carbon emissions is a vital step for organizations looking to increase awareness of the impact of climate change.

The new improved system, supported by Microsoft technology including Windows Server and SQL Server, will streamline information sharing between corporations, institutional investors and the world’s national regulatory systems to drive greenhouse gas emission reductions and performance improvements

Participating corporations will report GHG emissions to CDP through the new data system beginning in 2010. CDP is also partnering with Accenture and SAP on the new system.

The CDP is an independent not-for-profit organization holding the largest database of corporate climate change information in the world. Microsoft has voluntarily reported its carbon emissions annually to CDP since 2005.
