Trivium on sustainability leaderboard
Trivium Packaging is in the top 8% of companies taking action to become more sustainable according to The CDP’s 2021 Supply Chain Report.
Trivium has acheived a newly provided A rating in supplier engagement from the CDP, the non-profit organisation 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 recognised 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 emphasises 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.”
