This collaboration will help Anthesis in its goal to deliver sustainable performance across the country, enabling cities to become more resilient in the future.”

Anthesis, the sustainability activator, announces that it has signed an agreement with CDP, the non-profit which runs the world’s environmental disclosure system for companies, cities, states and regions, to become its first UK Cities accredited solutions provider.
Anthesis’s market-leading expertise on sustainability and local authorities will provide valuable support to UK cities in aligning their sustainability goals to the Paris Agreement and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The partnership will support cities to track, set, and deliver on the necessary ambitions to tackle the climate emergency. Anthesis will engage with the CDP network on a range of topics, including mitigation, adaptation, resiliency, and water security, providing professional advice on climate reports and disclosures, increasing transparency and tracking progress on sustainability goals.
CDP’s Global Director of Cities, States & Regions, Kyra Appleby, comments, “We are delighted to have Anthesis on board as CDP’s first UK cities partner. Offering tailored support to cities looking to reduce the impacts of climate change and with industry-leading analysis tools and wealth of experience, Anthesis will provide valuable support to UK cities looking to simplify and accelerate climate action.”
Anthesis’ SCATTER tool is already an established resource for councils reporting to CDP, providing local authorities with free access to assess, report on, and reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions that their area produces. SCATTER helps generate a greenhouse gas inventory and has helped more than 300 local authorities to date understand and develop strategies to reduce emissions.
