Why must supply chains collaborate to combat climate risk?

More multinationals and their suppliers than ever before now use CDP to achieve sustainable supply chain management. Written by Accenture, the CDP Global Supply Chain Report 2014, ‘Collaborative Action on Climate Risk’, contains a wealth of information on how leading companies are managing the significant risk that climate change poses to the globalised supply chain model. For the first time ever, this report combines analysis of climate change and water related information disclosed by thousands of companies.
