Cables Britain Limited (‘CBL’) has been commended by CDP for the action it is taking to reduce emissions and mitigate the risks of climate change.
CBL is featured in CDP’s Supplier Climate Performance Leadership Index (SCPLI). The SCPLI highlights those companies within CDP’s supply chain program that have demonstrated a strong approach to climate strategy and emissions reduction in their CDP responses. This program collects information on behalf of 64 multinational companies with combined annual spend of almost US $1.15trillion.
This index, compiled by FirstCarbon Solutions (FCS) on behalf of CDP, provides an evaluation tool for supply chain members and participating suppliers. In its pilot year we have 80 companies from the supply chain program represented in this year’s SCPLI, based on analysis of the 2868 responses to CDP’s 2013 supply chain questionnaire.
Michael Heath, Managing Director of CBL commented:
“We are delighted to be identified as a leader on climate change action and achieve a position on the SCPLI as a new entrant. We understand to build a sustainable business we need to minimise our environmental impact from our operations, create more sustainable products and services and work closely with our suppliers and customers to inspire them to take action to protect the environment too.”
Paul Simpson, chief executive officer of CDP, commented:
“Companies in the Supplier Climate Performance Leadership Index are demonstrating a clear commitment to manage their greenhouse gas emissions and take action on climate change. Organizations which work to reduce their emissions and integrate climate change issues into their business strategies have the potential for cost savings, revenue generating opportunities and, ultimately, a more resilient future.”
Robert Francisco, President of FirstCarbonSolutions, commented:
“This year, FirstCarbon Solutions and CDP are publishing a list of the top performing suppliers as part of the SCPLI. 80 companies out of the 2868 that participated in this year’s Supply Chain Program, including CBL, are listed in this inaugural index which evaluates companies against each other and identifies best practices for improving climate change performance.”
