The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is to extend its collaboration with corporate giants. It will help them assess greenhouse gas emissions and create a single standardised approach for climate change information throughout their supply chains.It aims to help customers and suppliers work together to develop strategies to reduce their carbon footprints.Tesco and Unilever joined the CDP Supply Chain Leadership Collaboration (SCLC) last October and PepsiCo is among the latest batch of large companies to join its ranks. Each SCLC member has selected up to 50 suppliers to work with them on a pilot project, which will refine the process before it is rolled out in May. Tesco chief executive Sir Terry Leahy said the CDP initiative had “a simple aim to bring together major retailers and key brands, so that we can understand, report and reduce carbon emissions within the supply chain”. He added: “I very much hope that firms who supply us and our competitors will consider being part of this venture.”Ian Midgley, senior vice-president supply chain for Unilever, said the firm had been tackling the impact of its own operations on the environment for some time. But he added: “We want to continue to develop our understanding of greenhouse gas management across our supply chain. Collaboration with the CDP and other firms with similar aims should accelerate learning and leverage expertise in this area.”
Cooked and fermented meat supplier Dawn Farm Foods has announced a seven year contract, worth E700m (£631m), to supply Subway’s franchise in Europe.Subway currently has 1,485 outlets in the UK and Ireland and a further 1,400 across Continental Europe. Dawn Foods chief executive Larry Murrin said it was a significant deal for the firm, which follows major investment in its manufacturing base, supported by Enterprise Ireland.”Subway has ambitious growth plans for store openings across Europe and, with hard work on both sides, this deal will translate into hundreds of millions of euros in export sales for Ireland over the duration of the seven-year contract,” said Murrin.Mike Attwood, purchasing director of EPIC (the purchasing arm of the Subway sandwich chain), said: “We know Dawn Farms well and we have worked closely together to come up with a deal that makes sense for our franchisees and gives certainty to the supply side of our business as we continue our drive for growth across Europe.”
