Hessle food firm recognised for commitment to tackling climate change

Food firm Cranswick from Hessle has been named on the CDP 2022 Supplier Engagement Leaderboard for the second consecutive year.​

This recognition from CDP – a global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities and regions to manage their environmental impacts – reflects Cranswick’s commitment to tackling the climate crisis through an integrated approach, working with suppliers to take action, measure and reduce climate risk within the supply chain.

Working collaboratively across the total supply chain is a critical part of achieving Cranswick’s Science Based Targets as the business transforms to halve emissions by 2030 and reach Net Zero by 2040.

Sonya Bhonsle, Global Head of Value Chains at CDP, said: “Environmental action is not happening at the speed, scale and scope required to limit global temperature rises to 1.5 degrees, with many companies still not acknowledging that their impact on the environment extends far beyond their operations and that of climate change.

“COP 15 couldn’t have been clearer in the call to action on corporate reporting on nature. If a company is not preparing for future regulations on nature in the supply chain, they are open to a wide range of risks and could also be missing out on the opportunities that safeguarding nature will bring. Quite simply, if a company wants to be in business in the future, they need to start embedding nature into the way that they buy and collaborating with suppliers to drive action in the supply chain.

“Therefore, we need to see environmental leadership from companies right now by tackling their impacts on climate change and nature together, working with their suppliers in an integrated way that includes nature as standard, and incentivising this engagement within their organization.”

Cranswick’s Supplier Engagement Rating (SER) places it in the top 8% of companies assessed and is driven by strong supplier engagement practices, the scope of Cranswick’s climate targets, detailed reporting and demonstration of sustainability embedded within the organisation.
