CDP’s annual Supplier Engagement Rating system independently evaluates supplier engagement strategies with the aim of recognizing best practice and accelerating action to reduce emissions in global supply chains. Zebra was rated among the top 8% assessed for supplier engagement on climate change.
“We are grateful for the support and engagement of our suppliers globally as we leverage best practices to improve sustainability in our own business and for our customers,” said Tami Froese, Chief Supply Chain Officer, Zebra Technologies. “This recognition from CDP confirms our commitment to measure and reduce climate risk within our supply chain as well as continue our efforts to protect the environment.”
In alignment with the Science Based Targets initiative, Zebra is committed to a 15% absolute reduction in scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions from purchased goods and the customer use of sold products by 2030 from its 2020 baseline. To achieve this goal, the company is focused on supplier engagement, product innovation, and circular economy sustainability initiatives.
“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,” said Sonya Bhonsle, Global Head of Value Chains, CDP. “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 incentivizing this engagement within their organization.”
