Autodesk is collaborating with the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) on the CDP Cities program, which provides a standardized platform for cities worldwide to disclose their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and other climate-related information.
The cities of tomorrow are being shaped, built, and managed by the governments, businesses, and citizens of today. To create more sustainable cities that support a better quality of life while minimizing environmental impact, today’s designers need a clear picture of the impact of climate change on cities.
The first CDP Cities information request was successfully completed with over 40 cities participating from across the globe. Cities were asked to identify regulatory, physical, and financial risks and opportunities related to climate change in key areas such as land use, buildings, transportation, and energy.
Autodesk provided guidance in the creation of the questionnaire for cities. In addition, Autodesk is partnering with CDP Cites to bring the survey results and GHG emissions data to life with an interactive map.
See the survey results in the Global Report on C40 Cities, which highlights the opportunities and challenges that climate-change brings to cities around the world.
Autodesk Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions for buildings and infrastructure enable municipalities and businesses to plan, design, build, and manage more efficient, sustainable infrastructure, as well as provide project transparency to help keep city stakeholders and citizens informed and involved.

The CDP is an independent, not-for-profit organization providing a transformative global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share climate change information. Thousands of organizations from across the world’s major economies disclose their greenhouse gas emissions, water use and climate change strategies through CDP. CDP makes the data available to a wide audience including investors, corporations, governments, policymakers, academics, and the public.
