Evaluation of Valuing Corporate Carbon Project

Windfarm at sunset

For the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), 2017: CIFF has provided funding for the CDP ‘Valuing Corporate Carbon Project’, to develop a programme of activities to support the disclosure of corporate carbon emissions and develop a means of harnessing investor and corporate action to reduce emissions. The aim of this project was to evaluate and learn from the performance of the programme and to recommend changes to its implementation and monitoring. The work included the development of an evaluation framework to test the theory of change, linking carbon disclosure to investor and corporate action, and a survey of investors, companies, NGOs and other stakeholders to test this theory. Outputs from the evaluation informed CIFF’s annual review of the CDP programme.
