Target, Tesco and CVS Health have joined Walmart in an agreement to collect data from suppliers, through non-profit CDP, regarding their overall environmental footprint. By asking suppliers to report on their environmental footprint, the retailers aim to reduce environmental risk and cut carbon emissions in their supply chains. The retailers are three of the new companies that have joined in the supply chain initiative through CDP: the total number of companies now reporting through CDP marks more than a 15% increase from last year, when 99 organizations were requesting data.
Other organizations which have begun requesting supplier data through CDP in 2018 include: AB InBev, Royal Bank of Canada, chemical companies Croda and Arkema, and the Los Angeles Department of W”after & Power.
