In the beginning of April, the world’s leading climate reporting organization CDP will launch a new reporting cycle for 2022. Disclosing environmental data through the CDP-ICLEI unified reporting system helps to track a city’s performance and progress on environmental matters, as well as evaluates the city’s current situation and the impacts of key actions, both environmental and social. It also enables benchmarking, identifies future opportunities, and defines critical climate actions.

It also enables benchmarking, identifies future opportunities, and defines critical climate actions.

The reporting is done online in the form of a questionnaire, which comprises of five different modules, focusing only on the most important data points for city climate actions. The number of questions has been reduced by over 60% from previous years and this year’s questionnaire has three different pathways to fit the different contexts of cities better. The questionnaire also aligns with all important initiatives and framework reporting requirements, such as the Common Reporting Framework (CRF), Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), Science-Based Climate Targets (SBT), Race to Zero and Race to Resilience.

The cooperation of UBC and CDP began in 2016 and ever since then, UBC has annually released a report based on the disclosure, highlighting the achievements of our member cities. Last year a total of 21 UBC member cities disclosed their data publicly, demonstrating their climate leadership and the high level of ambition that cities around the Baltic Sea Region share. Our previous reports are available on our website!

This year we wish to see even more cities disclosing their climate action-related data, learn more about how you can start the reporting process.
