The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has assembled the largest database of corporate greenhouse gas emissions and climate change information in the world, with some 2,500 companies globally now reporting this information.
It facilitates the collection of climate change data within investment portfolios – representing some 534 global institutional investors with a combined $64 trillion in assets under management – as well as through corporate and public sector supply chains.
Elopak reported into the CDP Supply Chain programme in 2009 on the request of a global customer and scored in the first quartile among 700 suppliers.
The company’s environmental director, Sveinar Kildal, said: “Elopak has now become a member of the programme in order to measure climate change impact and risk within our own supply chain. We will collect data from all our suppliers who we’ve asked to open their books to us on sustainability. This will provide a complete and visible data source within our entire supply chain – right back to the forest.
“Membership is a proactive move to give transparency throughout our value chain which enables us to lower our environmental impact on this planet. The CDP puts the risk of climate change (and how we behave to combat this) at the centre of our global business strategy.”
Frances Way, head of CDP Supply Chain, said: “The CDP Supply Chain programme brings together the huge purchasing power of global corporations to provide a standard reporting model for suppliers to advance carbon disclosure in the supply chain. Packaging companies have the potential to be part of the solution as we move towards a low-carbon economy. CDP is delighted that Elopak realised the benefits of reporting on climate change last year and is now encouraging suppliers to do the same.”
