Companies respond the questionnaires online; consists of Governance, Risks and Opportunities, Business Strategy, Targets and Performance, Emission and Verification. Supply Chain module is available for companies whose customers request them to respond.

How to Respond CDP Questionary All questions in CDP questionnaires are on voluntary basis and companies are not enforced to respond entire questionnaire.


SEMTRIO understands that CDP is a compressive journey and the expectation from the responses have to be understood very well. The CDP questionnaire needs to be completed with satisfactory answers to meet the technical and detailed expectations of the platform.

For instance, if a company is not related with a CDP question or an operation, it is not the best answers to say only ‘NO’; an explanation must be provided together with the response.

In 2018 version of CDP, Climate Change module has been updated with the financial aspects of sustainability. CDP asks companies to declare their climate risk plans with the impacts to their financial situations . It is no enough to have only environmental knowledge in order to answer this questions, financial consultancy is being an integral part of the CDP questionnaire. We, as SEMTRIO, have in-house experts that have comprehensive knowledge of all financial and environmental modules in CDP questionnaire.

CDP – Scoring

To help companies keep track of their improvement, CDP has developed detailed, program-specific scoring methodologies to measure responses at question-level. They indicate the number of points available for each question and what information the compny need to provide to be awarded these points.

  • 1. LEADERSHIP Implementation of best practices in the field of environmental management.
  • 2. MANAGEMENT Evidence of actions and management methods to address these impacts.
  • 3. AWARENESS  Knowledge of how environmental issues impact your business
  • 4. DISCLOSURE the level of detail and comprehensiveness of a response

These levels represent the steps that the company will move through as progresses towards environmental stewardship. Each level is translated into a single letter which represents the company’s overall score, so the company knows at what stage the company is currently operating at along the journey towards better environmental stewardship.

Highlights of responding to CDP

CDP – Highlights

CDP – Highlights

It might not be possible to respond to all of the questions in your first disclosure, and encourage first time responders to take a simple approach, focusing on providing a complete response to a smaller set of questions, however, to get A – Leadership level from CDP is not too difficult.

A small hint: Accounting GHGs emissions according to a recognized standard and verification of the GHG Report by an individual verifier company help to jump to higher level.

There are important points to note when responding to CDP questions. It is likely more important to know how to answer than answer all the question.

It is unlikely to be starting off with all the information or the right systems in place. However, the very act of starting will begin the conversation for you and your team about taking the next steps in approaching these kinds of questions and implementing a plan to improve year on year.
