CDP, a not-for-profit that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts, recently released their 2017 Supply Chain Report.

In concert with that report, one of our clients, Microsoft was recognized as only one of 89 organizations, worldwide, that engaged their suppliers through CDP in the past year. As CDP supply chain members, these companies and government entities leveraged their US$2.7 trillion of procurement spend to request information from over 8,200 suppliers, on which the data in this report is based. Furthermore, Microsoft was also recognized as a Lead Member for their support of climate change initiatives with respect to supplier involvement.

NWCS is proud to have been one of a select few who participated in this review as a key supplier to Microsoft; we congratulate them on their special recognition. NWCS will continue to support these initiatives for all of our clients as part of our obligation to be a responsible corporate citizen.
