For all CDP corporate questionnaires, there are two versions: minimum and full. The minimum version contains identical but fewer questions, and no sector-specific questions or data points.
The minimum version of a questionnaire can be completed by:
For previous responders with an annual revenue of less than EUR/US$250 million, CDP reserves the right to remove the option of a minimum version questionnaire due to the organization’s potential or existing environmental impact.
Companies with an annual revenue of more than EU/US$250 million that are disclosing for the first time and responding to the minimum version will not be eligible for scoring.
Companies responding to the minimum version that have an annual revenue of less than EUR/US$250million will be eligible for scoring and will be scored using the minimum version of the methodology. They will not be eligible for the A list as the scores are not comparable to scores resulting from the full version of the scoring methodology.
Note that companies eligible to complete the minimum version of a questionnaire can choose to answer the full version if they consider this to provide greater benefit to their organization or stakeholders.
