First international edition of the “Major Climate Challenge For Suppliers”, Carrefour rewards ten of its suppliers for what they are doing to curb climate change

Boulogne-Billancourt, FRANCE, 2015-11-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — On 19 and 20 November 2015, Carrefour hosted an event in Paris for the ten winners of its “Major Climate Challenge For Suppliers”. An opportunity for all of its partners from ten of the Group’s integrated countries to adopt a collective policy for tackling climate change.

As we gear up for the COP21 conference, the “Major Climate Challenge For Suppliers” showcases companies that have developed concrete initiatives designed to tackle climate change, such as reducing waste or greenhouse gas emissions, protecting the planet’s biodiversity and developing eco-responsible products.

The ten prize-winners were all selected in their respective countries by panels made up of experts, journalists and NGO representatives who assessed the innovative solutions developed to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and the results that these solutions yielded.

This ” Major Climate Challenge For Suppliers ” has helped Carrefour to identify and promote exemplary initiatives which are in line with its aim of reducing its carbon emissions by 70% between now and 2050.

Carrefour is continuing to support suppliers, helping them to develop innovative and environmentally-friendly products for its stores that meet customers’ requests. What’s more, supporting its partners is – alongside tackling waste and preserving the planet’s biodiversity – the third key area in which Carrefour’s CSR policy is focused.
