Paul Dickinson is Founder and Executive Chair of CDP (the Carbon Disclosure Project), an independent non-profit organisation whose aim is to transform the way the world does business, to prevent dangerous climate change and protect our natural resources.
Paul gave a Climate-KIC SPARK! Lecture about CDP in Berlin in November 2014. A key focus of his talk is the role that citizens can play in changing the behaviour of large corporations in the context of climate change.
