OgilvyEarth Global President Kim Slicklein today joined Paula di Perna, the Strategic Advisor of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), to ring the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange. CDP is a non-profit organisation that provides a global system for thousands of companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share environmental information. It does in part this by working with 655 institutional investors holding US$78 trillion in assets to encourage companies to improve environmental disclosure and performance.This is instrumental in global efforts to drive greenhouse gas emission reductions and promote sustainable water use.
“The ringing of the bell marked the launch of CDP’s annual S&P 500 Climate Change Report analysing how the largest listed companies in the US are progressing toward a lower-carbon future. OgilvyEarth is CDP’s official Australian Communications Partner and the two organisations work closely together to ensure that CDP’s important messages resonate.
CDP is a great partner for OgilvyEarth here in Australia. CDP’s Australian office is located at Ogilvy House in Sydney, and CDP shares OgilvyEarth’s commitment to professional excellence. In a 2012 survey of 850 sustainability professionals carried out by GlobeScan/SustainAbility, CDP was ranked as the most credible corporate sustainability rating system in the world, ahead of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes and the FTSE4GOOD Index Series.”
