Our story

What do our employees' have to say?

  • Climate change is the prime crisis threatening humanity, with ancillary issues like water security and deforestation. Across these themes CDP provides the largest coordination of global resources, with 9,600 large companies and 800 major cities annually reporting on their environmental performance against an agenda we set, and scored according to our criteria. Governments are weak, only CDP can offer you the opportunity to make system change at this global scale.

    Paul Dickinson

    Executive Chair

  • CDP is a great place to work for anyone looking for a global reach and exposure to tackling environmental issues. The organisation is driven by so many inspiring, intelligent and passionate people, there is always something new to learn. There are great training opportunities for developing both technical and interpersonal skills. As the organisation expands to cover more environmental issues and influence more actors in the global economy, it is a very exciting place to be.

    Farheen Altaf

    Project Manager, Climate Change

  • I recently came to CDP to lead on our engagement strategy for different stakeholder groups. Having worked in the food industry and in the sustainability space most of my career, I of course knew of CDP and had hands-on experience in the disclosure process. What I am amazed to discover is how big an impact CDP has across all industries, and our influence through policy makers and financial sectors to enable real change in the environmental space. CDP has a unique and historic role in sustainability reporting as the only global, independent, environmental disclosure mechanism and the pace of change in this space is simply breath-taking. There has never been a better time to join CDP.

    Mercedes Tallo

    Chief Stakeholder Officer

  • I joined CDP because I wanted to work somewhere I could see I was making a difference. CDP's disclosure system does just that like nowhere else I have worked. Decisions we make drive positive environmental changes across tens of thousands of companies, investors and policy makers every year. Getting those decisions right is essential. I joined CDP as an environmental expert with a history of working in environmental organisations but here I am complemented by experts in capital markets, corporate engagement, policy, IT and more and it is only together we can maximise change. Being part of that process is both an exciting honour and a challenging responsibility, but it results in a fulfilling and stimulating job.

    Thomas Maddox

    Global Director, Forests And Land

  • I decided to move to CDP and found fertile environment to grow professionally and to strike a great work-life balance: CDP allows for great flexibility. I joined with a global role, yet based in a regional office in Berlin and then moved back to Amsterdam where I am currently based. The team I head is spread over twelve time zones: we work remotely in a very efficient and effective way, yet seize opportunities to meet in person through the year. I also work four days a week at CDP, which allows me to invest time and energy in side functions: I am a member of the advisory board of two start-ups and I sit on the Board of Connect-Italian, an NGO I co-funded to give back to my beloved home country.
