Report: CDP: Missing link - Harnessing the power of purchasing for a sustainable future
Category: Latest News, Retail & Supply Chains

Supply chains must be a focus for global organizations seeking to avoid the risks and capitalize on the opportunities that come from building a sustainable future. The 89 members of CDP's supply chain program, including names like BMW, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft and Walmart, have a combined spend of US$2.7 trillion. They are using this power to engage suppliers, asking them to disclose environmental data to CDP. Understanding and quantifying climate impacts, risks, and opportunities is fundamental to developing a sustainable supply chain program. It helps organizations prioritize, plan and lead on engaging with suppliers. The 20% increase in CDP supply members in 2016 indicate that organizations are increasingly concerned with measuring and managing the emissions housed in their supply chain. CDP supply chain members and their suppliers saw the benefit of taking action when cost savings of US$12.4 billion were disclosed this year. However, these actions are not taken up across the whole supply chain. Only 22% of responding companies are engaging with their own suppliers on carbon emissions and just 16% of companies are engaging on water use.
