CDP performance is one of the key indicators of a sustainable business, helping to evaluate the impact companies have on climate change. Investors and customers consider a business’ CDP performance to be a good indicator of its sustainability. CDP’s rankings measure transparency of climate change impacts, as well as the efforts taken to mitigate and reduce those negative impacts. The CDP Climate Change Questionnaire focuses on how businesses incorporate climate change risk analysis into planning, strategy, risk, and opportunities reporting. Disclosing an organization’s sustainability efforts, such as improving climate change impacts, as a part of its core business strategies can improve its CDP performance.

According to the 2017 United Nations Global Compact Progress Report, 75 percent of firms report that they “are taking action on the [SDGs].” Approximately 69 percent of CEOs take part in the creation and monitoring of sustainable development strategies and policies. The top five SDGs that companies focus on are Goal 8 (Good Jobs and Economic Growth), Goal 3 (Good Health and Wellbeing), Goal 5 (Gender Equality), Goal 4 (Quality Education) and Goal 12 (Responsible Consumption).

This progress in ICT can lead to acceleration in meeting targets in key areas such as financial inclusion, education, health, energy, and climate change. This article takes a look at financial inclusion and education, and gives key points on how ICT contributes toward their advancement.
