GLRPPR Sector Resource: CDP Supply Chain Report 2012: A New Era: Supplier Management in the Low-Carbon Economy

Title:
CDP Supply Chain Report 2012: A New Era: Supplier Management in the Low-Carbon Economy

Abstract:
Climate change has become a mainstream business issue, and large global corporations are now extending their gains in internal carbon management to the next opportunity: their supply chain. Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has been collecting data on corporate greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions for almost a decade. Global companies that have been exposed to these information requests for many years understand the value of measuring and reporting their emissions, and they are now pushing their suppliers to report more climate change-related information and take greater action to reduce their emissions. This represents a much larger opportunity: indirect emissions (meaning those from the supply chain) represent as much as 86% of a company's total emissions.
