The CDP’s 2021 Supply Chain Report released today places global metal packaging leader, Trivium Packaging, on the 2021 CDP Supplier Engagement Leaderboard, among the top 8% of companies taking action to make suppliers and partners more sustainable.

Trivium proudly announces the prestigious ranking, with a newly provided A rating in supplier engagement from the CDP, the non-profit organization looked at as the gold standard of environmental reporting.

The recognition follows Trivium’s A- rating for carbon disclosure success and underscores its commitment to working with partners across the entire production process to measure and reduce environmental risks and significantly reduce CO2 emissions.

“We’re delighted to be recognized by the CDP as a 2021 Supplier Engagement Leader, raising the level of climate action across our value chain,” Jenny Wassenaar, Trivium’s Chief Sustainability Officer said. “As supply chains wrap around the world in complex ways, so do environmental challenges. This makes it critical to connect and collaborate with partners who have a similar sustainability vision in order to transition to a sustainable, circular economy. Bringing climate-friendly efforts across the entire value chain is pivotal in our journey to maintain a healthy and prosperous future for generations to come. Every step counts and every action we take matters!”

This year’s report titled, “Engaging the Chain: Driving Speed”, 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 an environmental crisis. The report assessed over 8,000 companies’ supplier engagement initiatives based on questions around governance, targets, scope 3 emissions, and value chain engagement.

Trivium’s Chief Procurement Officer, Andrew Vanstone stated:

“Our suppliers are critical to our success. Trivium’s sustainability goals extend beyond our walls and are embedded into our procurement processes, starting with the identification of CO2 in the products supplied to us and working with our suppliers to build effective strategies to reduce those emissions. Our process emphasizes continual training our procurement community on the subject matter, moving forward together for a cleaner future. This recognition fuels the passion our team has to continue to affect change.”

Sonya Bhonsle, CDP’s Global Head of Value Chains & Regional Director Corporations added:

“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 500+ companies earning a place on CDP's 2021 Supplier Engagement Leaderboard. As a Supplier Engagement Leader, Trivium is a trailblazer driving the transition towards a sustainable net-zero future.”
