Already recognized as a member of the global “A” list for environmental transparency and action, CSX has been named to the 2020 CDP Supplier Engagement Leaderboard.
CDP, a global environmental non-profit group, announced that CSX is among the top 7 percent of companies assessed for supplier engagement on climate change. The recognition is based on companies’ completion of the 2020 CDP climate change questionnaire. CDP determines each company’s Supplier Engagement Rating (SER) using responses to selected questions on governance, targets, emissions and value chain engagement.
The SER is an important achievement, according to the CDP, because its data show that a company’s supply chain emissions are 11.4 times greater on average than its direct emissions.
“Meaningful corporate climate action means engaging with suppliers to reduce emissions across the value chain,” said Sonya Bhonsle, CDP’s global head of Value Chains. “Despite the challenges from COVID-19, in 2020 nearly 400 companies achieved a place on CDP’s Supplier Engagement Leaderboard. Congratulations to these companies [who are] are driving the transition towards the net-zero sustainable economy.”
