The number of businesses asking their suppliers to disclose environmental data has jumped by a quarter in 2020.

That's according to environmental non-profit CDP, which says 30 large purchasing organisations from around the world have started working with CDP this year to help manage their supply chains more sustainably - they include multinational corporations such as Nike, Airbus, Sainsbury’s and Ørsted, as well as public sector organisations like the New York Metropolitan Transport Authority.

These businesses and groups are now asking their key suppliers to report data regarding their impacts, risks, opportunities and climate, deforestation and water strategies through CDP’s environmental disclosure platform to better inform procurement decisions and supplier engagement strategies.
