“We are fully committed to excellence in climate action and working actively with suppliers to support us in preserving the environment. I am very pleased to see our work being recognized by CDP,” said CEO Gilles Andrier. “We will continue to engage and work closely with our suppliers to protect the environment and secure our business for the long-term.”
“In the ten years that we have been working with purchasing organizations we have seen a fundamental shift in expectations around business action on sustainability,” noted Sonya Bhonsle, global head of supply chain at CDP. “Leading purchasers are using disclosure to push positive change down the supply chain, with data playing an increasingly important role in their decision-making. If suppliers continue to cascade good practices further down the supply chain, this has the potential to play a huge role in the rapid transition to a sustainable, low-carbon economy.”
