CDP-Climate-2014-CoverThis report presents the research findings of the 2014 South African Carbon Disclosure Project. This is the eighth successive year in which the CDP’s climate change information request has been sent to the CEOs of South Africa’s top listed companies, asking them to disclose their company’s response to climate-related risks and opportunities throughout their value chain.  In South Africa the CDP is run through a partnership between CDP, headquartered in London, and the National Business Initiative (NBI) in Johannesburg. Irbaris took the lead in writing this year’s report, with Incite providing assistance in analysis and aspects of the scoring. The report was launched at a function hosted by the National Business Initiative at KPMG’s office in Johannesburg on 15 October 2014.  Speaking at the launch was Dr Bob Scholes (CSIR), Antigone Theodorou (Director Global Operations, CDP) and David Hampton (Irbaris). The event concluded with a panel discussion with Jonathon joining Antigone, David, and Steve Nicholls (NBI).
