Inspiring action on climate change
We can have a much greater impact by working together with our suppliers, partners and customers to make a difference, so we look beyond our own operations. That’s why we continue to focus on engaging our customers through partnerships such as our support of WWF’s Earth Hour. We want to bring the issue of climate change to life and give people the confidence that the things they do, little or large, will lead to better lives for everyone.
In September 2015, we celebrated the completion of Sky Rainforest Rescue, our six-year partnership with WWF, through which we helped raise over £9m, save one billion trees in the Amazon and raise awareness of deforestation among 7.3 million people.
In addition to being in the CDP A List, we’re part of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Supply Chain Programme, engaging with our key suppliers on climate change. Now in our fifth year, we continue to see a strong response rate with 64% of our selected suppliers participating, and on average achieving a disclosure score above the global CDP average. These suppliers report a number of emission reduction activities, resulting in savings of around two million tonnes of CO2 and an estimated US$104 million.
