World Green Summit

April 13, 2012 – London - Carbon Disclosure Project has partnered with the World Green Summit (–the business, finance and government forum during the high-level segment of the Rio+20 conference on June 20th, 2012, at the Government of Rio Pavilion, located at the Olympics Athlete’s Park, next to the official Rio+20 conference centre: Riocentro.

Paul Simpson, CEO of the Carbon Disclosure Project says: “Partnering with the World Green Summit will provide an ideal arena for CDP to continue communicating the benefits of integrating investor-quality climate change information into mainstream reporting. Thousands of the world’s largest corporations disclose emissions and water use through our existing system and therefore demonstrate an understanding of the importance of harmonised and comparable reporting; we hope the World Green Summit will catalyse collaborative progress in this area from businesses and governments to help achieve necessary greater reductions of global emissions.”

Michael Mathres, Director, World Green Summit says, “In order to progress the concept of sustainable development, it is imperative to understand the financial risks from companies, cities and investors. That is why we are delighted to be partnering with the Carbon Disclosure Project, as they work with investors representing $78tr of assets under management.”
