Episode 10: Paul Dickinson | The crucial importance of corporate climate change data

Paul Dickinson founded CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project, in 2000 with a vision to help the global economic system operate within sustainable environmental boundaries, and to prevent dangerous climate change.  CDP manages a data platform that gathers data on the greenhouse gas emissions from major corporations around the world. The data reported through CDP is used by a global network of investors and purchasers, representing over $100 trillion. In this interview, Paul discusses trends in provision of climate change information by corporations, how this information is being used in various industries, and gives a frank assessment of the progress companies are making responding to climate change.
