CDP recognises supply chain work

BT, Nestle, Honda and Alphabet are among over 120 companies recognised by environmental disclosure platform CDP for their work to reduce emissions and environmental risks in their supply chain.

CDP's report, Cascading Commitments: driving upstream action through supply chain engagement, finds that supply chain emissions are on average 5.5 times those of company’s direct operations and reveals the number of companies using green procurement has almost tripled (from 58 last year), with a number now striking off suppliers for poor environmental performance.

“Sustainability is not an added extra,” commented Andrew McMullen, The LEGO Group. “It has become a key strand of our approach for supplier relationship management. In particular, we know that disclosure through CDP is a great lens for looking at energy and resource efficiency. If we can help suppliers to improve this then there is a huge amount of shared value to be gained, where we can both benefit from reduced environmental impact and cost savings.”

The country with the most supplier engagement leaders is the US with 40 while the UK is tied with Japan for second with 15.
