New API offers enhanced integration with CDP’s disclosure platform, further extending interconnectivity from data to framework reporting for organizations everywhere
OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada, March 16, 2023 – FigBytes, creators of the leading environmental, social, governance (ESG) Insight Platform for strategy, data, reporting, and stakeholder engagement, today announced FigBytes’ participation in CDP’s new API (Application Programming Interface) pilot project, further extending interconnectivity from data to framework reporting for organizations everywhere.
In 2023, CDP will be piloting a new API that will offer a selection of its software partners improved integration with CDP’s disclosure platform. The API will be available to participating Accredited Solutions Providers and their customers to use for the 2023 disclosure cycle, focusing on the corporate climate change questionnaire in this inaugural year. The API meets industry standards and will further support CDP to achieve its aim of enabling companies, cities, states and regions to improve their environmental transparency and action.
“We’re pleased to announce that FigBytes is one of the CDP Accredited Solutions Providers participating in the CDP Disclosure API pilot project this year,” explained Ted Dhillon, CEO and co-founder, FigBytes. “The new API is designed to further simplify the process of disclosing through CDP for our customers. We’re currently working with CDP to test the API prior to implementation and plan to make it available to our customers by May 2023.”
With the FigBytes ESG Insight Platform, organizations manage environmental challenges like climate and water, social programs, supplier transparency, as well as governance factors, all while reducing their reporting burden and regulatory risk, and meeting emerging disclosure requirements.
