Supply Chain Leadership Collaboration

As of yesterday, 11 more companies have joined the Supply Chain Leadership Collaboration (SCLC). An initiative of the nonprofit Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the SCLC encourages multinational companies to require disclosure of supply chain emissions and climate change strategy from up to 50 of their suppliers. The goal is to create a standardized system by which greenhouse gas emissions information is communicated through the global supply chain to stakeholders in these companies, and eventually to customers. 
Dell, HP, PepsiCo, Proctor & Gamble and Nestle join over 1,000 companies in this contribution to documenting and repairing carbon footprints of the worlds largest corporations. Each company's response to the CDP's invitation can be read and interpreted for truth on their website. Among the most recognizable companies to decline or avoid answering the call:, Lowe's, Sears, and Marriot.
