What Happens in Practice?

Organizations voluntarily report their GHG emissions to the Carbon Disclosure Project. The number of organizations reporting has increased over the years, which is an input measure. The assumption is that if organizations take the time to fill out the questionnaire that they also might be trying to reduce GHG emissions (outcome).

However, organizations have developed various degrees of expertise in measuring and disclosing their GHG emissions, related risks and opportunities, and other information. The actual outcome of reporting requires a detailed analysis. The Carbon Disclosure Project has various reports on its website that discuss the outcome of organizations’ reporting. Visit the Carbon Disclosure Project’s website to locate some of these reports.
