If you’re curious to see how the world’s cities are transitioning to a low-carbon economy, you can now follow it live. For the first time ever, CDP data is available in real time: Our live map of reporting cities allows you to track and view responses from the hundreds of cities currently submitting their climate change-related data to CDP.

The research is based on three years of corporate data disclosed through CDP and includes in-depth interviews with nearly 40 companies that use CDP to report and manage their environmental risks.

On this Earth Day, CDP is celebrating the ambition and progress of city governments on climate change.

Our public health is inextricably linked to the health of our environment. President Obama made this point powerfully this week, as his administration declared new actions to protect the wellbeing of citizens from the effects of climate change. Among the actions announced is a new commitment from CDP to open additional data from our vast collection. In particular, CDP will open its 2015 data related to the public health impacts of climate change in US cities, and how those city governments are tackling them.
