A new report from London-based investment advisory ShareAction has called on investors to use their voting rights to urge banks to play a more proactive role in the transition to a low-carbon economy, by “providing the major injections of capital required to finance technologies, infrastructure and the transition of traditional industries, as well as to cover the costs of adaptation.” Figures from the International Energy Agency estimate that $359 trillion worth of investment is required by 2050 to ensure the world avoids global warming exceeding 2°C.

New CDP report suggests suppliers lag behind on sustainability

New CDP report suggests suppliers lag behind on sustainability | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

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.
