Sofidel recognized as world leader for supplier engagement on climate change


Sofidel  has been identified as a global leader for its actions and strategies to manage carbon and climate change across its supply chain, and has been awarded a position on the Supplier Engagement leader board by CDP, the non-profit global environmental disclosure platform.

As more and more companies look to understand and manage the impact of their supply chains, over 130 leading companies have earned a place on the third annual Supplier Engagement leader board, more than double than the 58 companies last year and over quadruple the 29 featuring in the first year.

Over 5,000 companies were assessed by CDP on their supply chain engagement strategies. Sofidel is among the 3% of organizations to be awarded a position on the leader board, in recognition of its actions to reduce emissions and lower climate-related risks in the supply chain in the past reporting year.

The Supplier Engagement leader board is released in Cascading commitments: Driving upstream action through supply chain engagement, CDP’s Global Supply Chain Report 2019, written by CDP and Carbon Trust. The report reveals that with greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in supply chains on average 5.5 times those of company’s direct operations, there has been a step-change in corporate awareness and action on environmental impacts within the supply chain in the last decade.
