CDP Report: Supply Chain Sustainability Revealed: A Country Comparison

28th January 2015

Climate change is once again rising up the global agenda. Physical climate, regulatory and consumer preference changes expose supply chains to growing levels of climate risk. Uneven responses among suppliers present threats and opportunities for companies at the top of supply chains

This year’s supply chain program involved 66 corporations with $1.3 trillion in procurement spend. They requested that their suppliers disclose information on how they are approaching climate and water risks and opportunities, generating the largest ever set of such data, from 3,396 companies worldwide, up from 2,868 in 2013.

For the first time, CDP and Accenture have analyzed this data at the national level to assess the relative climate risk faced by supply chains in 11 key markets, the preparedness of these supply chains to manage these risks and the propensity of suppliers to work with their customers to reduce risk and seize climate opportunities
