Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

CDP Worldwide

By 2030, CDP aims to drive corporations, financial markets and governments to decouple growth from the depletion of freshwater resources and allocate capital towards a water secure economy. CDP uses transparency and accountability to drive ambitious action on water security at scale amongst investors, companies and governments to protect freshwater resources globally to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

CDP administers an annual corporate water disclosure questionnaire to motivate more than 2,000 companies to disclose their impacts on the environment and take action to reduce them. This collects corporate data related to their contributions towards SDG 6 indicators, including 6.3, 6.4 and 6.6.

Estimated annual water and sanitation budget: $1-10 million USD
