The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has today published a report on the disclosures made to it by global organisations regarding their use of carbon pricing in business planning, as well as the extent to which companies see the increasing regulation of carbon as a business opportunity.

The report is based on disclosures made to CDP by companies around the world. It presents breakdowns of the companies that have disclosed the use of an internal price on carbon, both by geography and sector. It also provides excerpts from the disclosures made that provide insight into the use of carbon pricing by businesses as well as the implications of carbon pricing and associated policies.

The research shows that, in many jurisdictions, companies are ahead of their governments in planning for climate change risks, costs and opportunities. They are prepared for a global carbon market and would welcome more regulatory certainty with respect to climate change policy and carbon pricing.

The full report can be downloaded from the CDP website.
