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.
