EICC partners with CDP on supply chain greenhouse gas initiative

The Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and CDP, the international NGO driving sustainable economies (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), announced a new partnership to help expand greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting and reductions in the electronics supply chain.

The EICC will be collaborating with CDP to encourage electronics companies to disclose through CDP’s supply chain program, which is designed to guide companies to achieve their environmental potential. All submitted data is independently assessed against CDP’s respected scoring methodology, and CDP scores enable benchmarking and easy identification of best practices in corporate climate leadership.

 The initial reporting cycle will start on April 1 and will be completed by July 31, 2015. Following this period, the EICC and CDP plan to publish joint reports on industry trends in GHG reporting and help EICC members develop product supply chain GHG inventories.

 The EICC Environmental Sustainability Work Group (ESWG) has made GHG emissions one of its priority issues for 2015, and the group plans to offer a number of programs and tools to help EICC members and suppliers learn more about the issue, develop GHG emissions inventories, and begin looking for cost-effective ways to reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions.
