Paul Simpson is the Chief Executive Officer of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), an independent non-profit organization providing primary corporate climate change information. CDP serves as a system through which organizations and businesses disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and climate change strategies. CDP subsequently uses this data in order to help shape financial and policy decisions with the goal of motivating investors, corporations, and governments to prevent dangerous climate change. This mission is accelerated by CDP`s initiatives to unify corporate CEO`s, investors, and political leaders to take action against climate change. As the only global climate change reporting system, CDP is an essential resource in making effective policy decisions.
Paul sits on the board of EIRIS, the advisory panel of Guardian Sustainable Business and on the steering committee of Forest Footprint Disclosure. Paul has previously worked with Chesham Amalgamations & Investments Ltd and the International Society for Ecology & Culture and is the former Director of the Social Venture Network. He has a BSc in Business and Finance from City University, London and an MSc in Responsibility and Business Practice at the University of Bath (with distinction).
