UL Solutions Partners with CDP to Release New Disclosure API
NORTHBROOK, Ill., March 18, 2023 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-- CDP's new API will enable a streamlined disclosure experience for companies 
working with UL Solutions.

UL Solutions, a global leader in applied safety science, today announced that 
it partnered with CDP Worldwide (CDP), a nonprofit organization, to develop its 
new disclosure application programming interface (API). This API will help CDP 
in their work, assisting companies, cities, states and regions in disclosing 
their environmental data.

In 2023, CDP will pilot this new API, offering a selection of its software 
partners improved integration with CDP's disclosure platform. The API will be 
available to participating accredited solutions providers (ASP) and their 
customers for the 2023 disclosure cycle, focusing on the corporate climate 
change questionnaire in this inaugural year. This improved API will further 
support CDP in achieving its goal of enabling companies, cities, states and 
regions to enhance their environmental transparency and action.

Organizations working with participating CDP ASPs in 2023 will also notice an 
improved experience. UL Solutions will be one of the partners offering the API 
to its customers this year -- building on the UL360 Sustainability Essentials 
Software's capabilities from collection to delivery of environmental, social 
and governance (ESG) data.

CDP's software ASPs support organizations with collecting and preparing their 
environmental data and reporting it to CDP. Gold ASPs can offer global support, 
whereas silver ASP partners are accredited in specific countries. The 
disclosure API will allow participating ASPs, including gold software provider 
UL Solutions, and the disclosing organizations they work with to automatically 
retrieve their customers' questionnaires from CDP and transfer data from the 
provider's own platform into CDP's online response system. This data transfer 
helps provide an enhanced and streamlined disclosure experience, reducing the 
need for manual data entry. It also allows CDP ASPs to leverage their 
platforms' existing capabilities to support organizations' CDP disclosure 

"With the increased demand for environmental data, CDP's disclosure API enables 
CDP-accredited solutions providers to offer a more seamless disclosure 
experience. UL Solutions will also be one of the partners using the API to 
enable customers to seamlessly integrate data collected and calculated within 
UL 360 Sustainability Software into their CDP responses," said Clayton 
Sanderson, senior operations manager at UL Solutions.

"We are grateful for UL Solutions' dedication to working with us on this 
important development," said Paul Robins ( 
), global head of programs at CDP Worldwide. "As well as partnering with us to 
build the disclosure API, they will be one of the accredited solutions 
providers using it with their customers this year."
