Companies voluntarily respond to the annual CDP questionnaire and are scored on their climate change disclosure and carbon management and risk mitigation efforts. High scores indicate the provision of robust climate data and a good understanding of climate change related issues affecting the company. The Climate Disclosure Leadership Index comprises the organizations that achieved a score within the top 10 percent of the sample assessed.

The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI) follow a best-in-class approach and include sustainability leaders from each industry on a global and regional level, respectively. DJSI World captures the top 10 percent of the world's 2,500 largest companies, based on economic, environmental and social performance. DJSI NA rates the top 20 percent of the 600 largest companies in the United States and Canada. In selecting the top performers in each business sector, DJSI reviews companies on both broad and industry-specific sustainability criteria, assessing performance in areas such as corporate governance, environmental standards, climate change policy, risk management, supply chain standards, branding, labor practices and employee development.
