CDP Global Supply Chain Report 2014: Collaborative Action on Climate Risk

For the 2014 report, 2868 companies--representing 14% of global industrial emissions--reported carbon data. The findings show that despite 75% of companies identifying current or future risk from climate change, investment in emissions reductions dropped 22% from the previous year and these investments are focusing more on short term returns.

The report revealed that companies that collaborate with supply chain stakeholders are 2 times more likely to realize financial return from investments in emissions reductions.

The report also shows the importance of employee engagement. Companies that involve more than 4 functions in supply chain sustainability were 2 times more likely to realize emission reductions and 4 times more likely to generate monetary savings.

Also included in the study is the Supplier Climate Performance Leadership Index (SCPLI) which recognizes the top 3% of suppliers committed to climate resiliency.
