This chapter discusses the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), a nonprofit organization known for aggregating the interest of investors. In 2002 it represented thirty-five investors with $4 trillion, and by 2010, this had grown to 500 investors with $60 trillion. The CDP also works with the accounting profession. A major project is the Climate Disclosure Standards Board, where it coordinates the big four accountants to determine what part of carbon accounting should go into the statutory legal annual report. The CDP has many government supporters, including ministers from fifteen member countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). It has been funded by the governments of Australia, France, Sweden, the UK and the US, and supported by the Ministry of Environment in Japan. With its initiatives on water, bonds, and accounting, the CDP is seeking to increase collaboration with sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) to ensure a rational response to climate change through information.
