Trivium Packaging has been placed on the 2021 Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Supplier Engagement Leaderboard among the top 8% of companies taking action to make supplies and partners more sustainable.
Trivium said it was “proud” to announce the prestigious ranking, with a newly provided A rating in supplier engagement from the CDP – the non-profit organisation seen as the ‘gold standard’ in environmental reporting.
The recognition follows Trivium’s A- rating for carbon disclosure success and underscores its commitment to working with partners across the entire production process to measure and reduce environmental risks, and significantly reduce CO2 emissions.
“We’re delighted to be recognised by the CDP as a 2021 Supplier Engagement Leader, raising the level of climate action across our value chain,” said Jenny Wassenaar, Trivium’s chief sustainability officer.
“As supply chains wrap around the world in complex ways, so do environmental challenges. This makes it critical to connect and collaborate with partners to have a similar sustainability vision in order to transition to a sustainable, circular economy.
“Bringing climate-friendly efforts across the entire value chain is pivotal in our journey to maintain a healthy and prosperous future for generations to come. Every step counts and every action we take matters.”
This year’s report, titled ‘Engaging the Chain: Driving Speed’, assessed over 8,000 companies’ supplier engagement initiatives based on questions around governance, targets, Scope 3 emissions and value chain engagement.
Sonya Bhonsle, CDP’s global head of value chains and regional director corporations, commented: “Our data shows that companies currently have blinkers on when it comes to assessing their indirect impacts and engaging with suppliers to reduce them.
“Companies must act urgently to cascade action and manage environmental impacts throughout their supply chains to scale the level of action to secure a 1.5oC future.
“Many congratulations to the 500+ companies earning a place on the CDP’s 2021 Supplier Engagement Leaderboard. As a Supplier Engagement Leader, Trivium is a trailblazer, driving the transition towards a sustainable net-zero future.”
