We’re proud to have earned a place on CDP’s 2021 Supplier Engagement Leaderboard, for taking action to measure and reduce climate risk within our supply chain.

This recognition from CDP reflects our commitment to tackling the climate crisis through a truly integrated approach. Working collaboratively across our total supply chain is a critical part of achieving our Science Based Targets (SBTi) as we transform our business to halve our emissions by 2030 and reach Net Zero by 2040.

Cranswick’s leadership rating is driven by our strong supplier engagement practices, the scope of our climate targets, our detailed reporting and demonstration of sustainability embedded within the organisation.

Sonya Bhonsle, Global Head of Value Chains & Regional Director Corporations, CDP highlights the urgent need for businesses to address upstream climate impacts:

“Our data shows that companies currently have blinkers on when it comes to assessing their indirect impacts and engaging with suppliers to reduce them. Companies must act urgently to cascade action and manage environmental impacts throughout their supply chains to scale the level of action to secure a 1.5°C future. Many congratulations to the 400+ companies earning a place on CDP's 2021 Supplier Engagement Leaderboard. As a Supplier Engagement Leader, Cranswick is a trailblazer driving the transition towards a sustainable net-zero future”.

Our leadership Supplier Engagement Rating (SER) places us in the top 8% of companies assessed.

This new leaderboard is launched alongside CDP’s new supply chain report, Engaging the chain: driving speed and scale, which highlights the urgent need for companies to cascade measurement and action down the entire supply chain, to achieve the speed and scale required to avert environmental crisis. The SER Introduction and SER methodology 2021 is available on CDP’s guidance page for more information.

Sustainable businesses need sustainable supply chains, and we hope CDP’s reporting inspires more companies to accelerate actions across all Scopes to reach Net Zero.
