How Hewlett-Packard, General Motors, Other Major Purchasers Helped Suppliers Save $12.4 Billion by Reducing Emissions  | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

Hewlett-Packard, General Motors and Bank of America are among the major purchasers that are saving billions and reducing emissions by working with their suppliers to improve environmental management, according to a Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) report.
Hewlett-Packard, for example, helped its suppliers avoid 800,000 metric tons of CO2e emissions and save more than $65 million through developing energy-saving action plans targeting local efficiency improvements.

New CDP report suggests suppliers lag behind on sustainability

New CDP report suggests suppliers lag behind on sustainability | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it
CDP research suggests that companies moving beyond mandatory reporting are also reducing emissions more and saving money – but suppliers aren't keeping up
EcoVadis's insight:

The new CDP supply chain report 2012 shows that transparency is somehow linked to CO2 emission reduction, which seems straightforward. However, much remains to be done as only a third of surveyed suppliers have clear reduction targets and first and foremost supplier engagement towards great transparency is key as more than 60% of suppliers never responded to the survey.

CDP: Big businesses are driving huge cuts in supply chain emissions

CDP: Big businesses are driving huge cuts in supply chain emissions | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

CDP new report reveals that global supply chain emissions fell by 434 million tonnes last year - more than France’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2014.
The emissions reduction, which led to £10bn in cost savings, was driven by the world’s seeking to exploit the opportunities presented by the low-carbon transition, CDP says.

EcoVadis's insight:

Business community is increasingly aware of the benefits of assessing indirect carbon emissions in the supply chain which include efficiency gains, savings to the bottom line and ultimately increased revenue. Are you following the same trend?
