Givaudan has been ranked on the CDP Supplier Engagement Leaderboard for its global leadership in supply chain engagement.
CDP’s Supplier Engagement Leaderboard recognizes companies that have received the highest ratings in CDP’s Supplier Engagement Rating (SER). The SER provides a rating for how effectively companies are engaging their suppliers on climate change. CDP assesses performance on supplier engagement using a company’s response to selected questions on governance, targets, scope 3 emissions and value chain engagement in the CDP climate change questionnaire.
Willem Mutsaerts, head of Global Procurement and Sustainability comments, said, “When it comes to delivering on our bold ambition to become climate positive before 2050, action has never mattered more. That action depends on close collaboration not just with our colleagues, our partners and our customers, but with our suppliers. Our suppliers are genuine partners, and we work with them towards mutual value creation. Acting as one to deliver meaningful impact across our supply chain is vitally important as we work together to create a future we can be positive about.”
Sonya Bhonsle, global head of Value Chains & Regional Director Corporations, CDP, said, “Our data shows that companies currently have blinkers on when it comes to assessing their indirect impacts and engaging with suppliers to reduce them. Companies must act urgently to cascade action and manage environmental impacts throughout their supply chains to scale the level of action to secure a 1.5°C future. Many congratulations to the 500+ companies earning a place on CDP's 2021 Supplier Engagement Leaderboard. As a Supplier Engagement Leader, Givaudan is a trailblazer driving the transition towards a sustainable net-zero future.”
