Savings of USD $12.4 billion in 2016 were reported by suppliers reporting on the Carbon Disclosure Project.
Suppliers disclosed a reduction equivalent to 434 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from reduction projects, which is an amount greater that the annual emission of France.
Even with these impressive savings (more than double than savings in 2015), the Carbon Disclosure Project ("CDP") 2017 report identifies "a general lack of understanding and maturity on how to address supply chain impacts, when compared to mitigating the impact of direct operations.
The total procurement spending power of CDP's 89 supply chain members collectively is US$2.7 trillion, an amount broadly equivalent to the economy of the United Kingdom in 2016. The report highlights that with the sum of all commitments made on the CDP, the world is left on a trajectory towards around 3.4 degree celsius.
