What is happening: An increasing number of companies are now requesting information on their suppliers’ environmental practices.
Increase: The number of companies asking for such information has multiplied by six over the past decade.
Companies: In a survey of 5,500 companies, with purchasing power of over $3.3 trillion, 115 requested this information. This shows how far there is to go in the fight for environmental transparency, but is still a big move in the right direction.
Emissions: The suppliers of these 115 companies reduced their CO2 emissions by 633 million metric tons last year.
