For the first time, in 2012, Autodesk is featured in CDP’s Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI). This index highlights the constituent companies within the S&P 500 Index which have displayed a strong approach to information disclosure regarding climate change. Companies are scored on their climate change disclosure, and high scores indicate good internal data management and understanding of climate change-related issues affecting the company.
Also for the first time, Autodesk is featured in CDP’s Carbon Performance Leadership Index (CPLI). The CPLI highlights those companies within the S&P 500 Index that have demonstrated a strong approach to climate strategy and emissions reduction in their CDP responses.
The CDP is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage, and share vital environmental information. CDP harnesses the power of market forces, including 655 institutional investors with assets of US$78 trillion, to collect information from companies on their greenhouse gas emissions and assessment of climate change, water risk, and opportunity.
