Highlights from 2011 disclosure


C40 cities show extraordinary awareness and commitment on climate change issues. An impressive 42 out of 58 cities responded to CDP this year, a 72 percent response rate. 38 cities made their responses available to the public. Such high rates are unusual in what is for many cities the first year of reporting and demonstrate clear leadership by C40 cities. 

 

Responsibility for climate change sits at the highest level in C40 cities. Nearly every responding city reports the involvement of their senior leadership in taking responsibility for climate change. Many cities also make special note of their efforts to engage local citizens, businesses, and other stakeholders in climate change-related decisions. 

 

Large city governments are keeping pace with major corporations on greenhouse gas measurement and disclosure. 2 out of every 3 responding cities measure and report their GHG emissions, a number just slightly lower than the equivalent metric for the Global 500, the largest 500 companies in the world.

 

Climate change risks to cities are serious and immediate. Over 90 percent of disclosing cities identify themselves as at risk due to climate change. And a further 43 percent report that they are already dealing with the effects of climate change in their areas.

 

Businesses in major cities could be at risk due to warming temperatures. 79 percent of cities report that climate change could affect the ability of businesses to operate successfully in their cities. As cities grow and the climate changes, maintaining safe, resilient environments for people and businesses will be increasingly important.


C40 cities report city-wide GHG emissions totaling 609.5 million* metric tons CO2-e. This figure is equivalent to the total emissions from a country like Canada. 


Voluntary cities lead the way among non-C40 cities in reporting their climate change-related data.  6 non-C40 cities participated in the CDP process this year, joining the world’s largest cities in standardized, international climate change reporting.
