Non-profit CDP and racing championship SailGP have partnered to inspire 1,000 new companies to convert to clean energy.
On top of this, they aim to have 50 host cities disclose to CDP through a cities climate charter by SailGP’s sixth season – which will take place in 2025/2026.
CDP uses capital markets and corporate procurement to encourage companies to disclose their environmental impacts, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and protect forests.
SailGP has committed to becoming the first sports organisation to commit to disclosing data to CDP by 2022.
Dexter Galvin, Global Director of Corporations, CDP, said: “Together, CDP and SailGP will use our joint platform to help cities and businesses further accelerate the adoption of sustainable practices, climate disclosure and clean energy use for a more sustainable future.”
Fiona Morgan, Director of Purpose and Impact at SailGP, added: “We are excited to be the first sport to commit to disclosing in 2022 and look forward to seeing our score, however there are no losers in the race for the future, only winners for the planet.”
