  • Íñigo Meirás, CEO of Logista: "At Logista, sustainability is an essential point when defining our strategy".
  • Companies recognised by CDP will be part of the CDP Supply Chain Report "Transparency to Transformation: A Chain Reaction".
  • CDP assesses commitment to suppliers through questions related to governance, targets, scope 3 emissions and participation of the value chain.

 

Logista, the leading distributor in Southern Europe, has been recognised by CDP as one of the companies with the best commitment to its suppliers in terms of climate change. CDP is a non-profit organisation that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts.

Companies recognised by CDP will be part of CDP's Supply Chain Report "Transparency to Transformation: A Chain Reaction". The report explores the economic justification for supply chain action and how this improves competitiveness and resilience.

In addition, these companies automatically receive a Supplier Engagement Rating (SER). Companies with the best SER are recognised as leading suppliers. This year the requirement was to enter in 7% of the ranking of companies. SER rates how effectively companies are engaging their suppliers on climate change. CDP assesses commitment to suppliers through questions related to governance, targets, scope 3 emissions and participation of the value chain.

Íñigo Meirás, CEO of Logista, welcomed this recognition: "Our organisation prioritises sustainability criteria in its strategy. We have made great progress in recent years, but our commitment to the environment and society will continue to be a priority in the short, medium and long term".

CDP says: "Corporate emissions do not end at the factory gate. In fact, CDP data shows that a company's supply chain emissions are on average 11.4 times greater than its direct emissions. Meaningful corporate climate action means engaging with suppliers to reduce emissions across the value chain. The pandemic has not stopped these companies: "Despite the challenges of Covid-19, by 2020 almost 400 companies achieved a place in the CDP ranking," they add.
