Environmental non-profit CDP recently announced a 24% jump in the number of companies asking their suppliers to report environmental data this year.
According to CDP, corporations such as Nike, Airbus, Sainsbury’s and Ørsted, as well as public sector organizations including the New York Metropolitan Transport Authority are among the 30 large purchasing organizations from around the world that have started working with CDP for the first time this year to help manage their supply chains more sustainably.
These corporations and organizations are asking their key suppliers to report data through CDP’s environmental disclosure platform on their impacts, risks, opportunities, and strategies related to climate change, deforestation and/or water security issues. This data will then be used to inform procurement decisions and supplier engagement strategies.
