Greening within the Supply Chain Still a Work in Progress

Green Supply Chain

Manufacturers have a lot of work to do to convince their supply chain partners to go green

Although manufacturers have stepped up their efforts aimed at reducing their own carbon footprints, they have yet to significantly widen those efforts throughout their supply chains.

According to a recent study conducted by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and Accenture, while 43% of the respondents say they have achieved year-on-year emissions reductions, only 28% of their suppliers can say the same. Part of the reason, explains Frances Way, program director for CDP, is that companies have had to train their procurement staffs in supply chain carbon management, which can be a significant investment.

While encouraged by the number of companies that say they've begun that training process, Way notes that "these trends are only now emerging, so we are yet to see a transformational impact on suppliers' emissions."
