Galliford Try has exceeded the industry average on a new Supplier Engagement Rating introduced by CDP, an organisation that measures a company's approach to managing and reporting carbon, water and timber impacts.
The Group achieved a 'C' rating in the first year of this assessment, ahead of the industry average, 'D', and ahead of the overall average of 3,300 participants, 'C-'.
Galliford Try, like others, was evaluated on supplier engagement through our responses to questions in four key areas of CDP's supply chain climate change questionnaire relating to governance, ambition, management of scope 3 emissions and supplier engagement. In addition, each company's CDP climate change score was factored in to its rating as an overall assessment of company performance on climate change. Last year, Galliford Try was rated 'B', exceeding the industry average of C, and contributing to its Supplier Engagement Rating.
Commenting on the Group's success, Caroline Johnstone, Head of Group Sustainability at Galliford Try, said: "Like CDP, we realise the value of working closely with our supply chain to help achieve our objectives, one of which is our approach to managing carbon. I am delighted this has been reflected in our above average Supplier Engagement Rating from CDP and look forward to working with the business to see how we can improve on this further."
