Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is an independent not-for-profit organization holding the largest database of primary corporate climate change information in the world and representing investors with combined assets of $92 trillion under management. Organizations around the world measure and disclose their greenhouse gas emissions, water management and climate change strategies through CDP, in order to set reduction targets and make performance improvements. This data is made available for use by a wide audience including institutional investors, corporations, policymakers and their advisors, public sector organizations, government bodies, academics and the public.

Starwood is committed to annually report and publicly disclose its carbon footprint, via the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Survey for all of its hotel and corporate office operations. Starwood has voluntarily reported its carbon footprint data through the CDP Investor Report for S&P 500 companies since 2007. 2010 marks the first year in which Starwood began reporting critical water-related data to the CDP via the Water Disclosure project and supply chain-related data through the CDP Supply Chain, an entirely separate reporting and tracking mechanism which has its independent reporting timelines and data input.
