CDP is a charity that specialises in positive changes that effect the environment, focusing on companies, cities and regions.

In 2017 CDP released a short film showing what cities are doing, and can do, to help prevent climate change. The video was released alongside CDP’s Open Data Portal, a database detailing work already untaken by more than 600 cities worldwide.
