Closing the Gap: Scaling Up Sustainable Supply Chains

The number of companies forging ahead with an industry-leading approach to tackling emissions in the supply chain has doubled in a year. But despite a high awareness of climate-related risks, this leadership is not yet spurring wide-scale action down the supply chain, leading to missed opportunities for cutting emissions and costs. CDP’s Global Supply Chain Report 2018 illustrates how businesses can leverage the power of purchasing to push for more action on climate change.

Delivering the ambition needed to achieve the goals outlined in the Paris Agreement requires businesses to reduce emissions, manage water resources and limit deforestation within their operations and throughout their supply chains. This report connects the dots between these business actions and the benefits they provide in terms of profits and the long-term prosperity that comes from moving towards sustainable development and a climate-safe future.
