The effects of climate change, water insecurity and deforestation are being felt around the globe through extreme weather and devastating natural disasters. The urgency of corporate action on environmental challenges is greater than ever.
In 2022, over 18,700 companies disclosed their climate, water, and forests impact through CDP, – representing half of global market capitalization and a remarkable 42% increase from 2021. This growth demonstrates the impact companies can make if they respond to climate change and nature loss with the urgency required. We hope the profiles in Stories of Change 2022 will inspire and encourage other companies to embrace the urgent action needed to address the sustainability challenges we all face, and demonstrate the tools available to support companies on their climate journeys and the steps required to reduce their environmental impact.
