Abstract: Through content analysis, this paper identifies the environmental and political-institutional strategies used by Brazilian companies in the carbon disclosure project (CDP) to fight against climate change. An exploratory study was made with a literature review and the content analysis technique was used for data treatment. The results show that political-institutional strategies are used by the Brazilian companies to develop partnerships and agreements with the stakeholders and that the CDP has fulfilled an important role to mobilise these companies to mitigate problems caused by climate change.
