Carbon Disclosure Project

Emera again recognized as Carbon Disclosure Leader

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is an international, independent, not-for-profit organization which maintains the largest database of corporate climate change information in the world.

Nova Scotia Power, through its parent company, Emera, voluntarily submits detailed climate change data to the Carbon Disclosure Project. We take part in this project because we want to be open about our climate change footprint and how we manage our environmental risks. The survey we complete as part of the project looks at direct emissions (what comes out of the stacks at our thermal generating stations) and indirect emissions (external energy purchases and vehicle emissions). The project works to offer a broad picture of everything a company does that contributes to climate change. Thousands of companies from around the world participate.

Emera is again featured in CDP’s Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index.This index, a key component of CDP’s annual Canada 200 report, highlights the constituent companies of the Canada 200 which have displayed a strong approach to information disclosure regarding climate change. Companies are scored on their climate change disclosure and high scores indicate good internal data management and understanding of climate change related issues affecting the company. Emera earned a score of 80, the highest among utilities.
