March 2021 - Global not-for-profit organization Carbon Disclosure Project has recognized Amdocs as one of the highest-ranking companies on its Supplier Engagement Leaderboard, awarding Amdocs with an A score in 2020 for Amdocs’ supply chain program.
What is the CDP and why is it important?
Each year, the CDP evaluates how corporate respondents to their detailed questionnaire are encouraging sustainability throughout their value chain, and then calculates their Supplier Engagement Rating accordingly. CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely considered to be a gold standard of corporate environmental transparency.
Amdocs’ inclusion on this list and high score demonstrate how Amdocs has been proactively working with its suppliers to ensure that environment and climate-related issues are present in every part of its value chain, enforced by Amdocs’ Supplier Code of Conduct.
Amdocs’ efforts to build a sustainable supply chain is part of its commitment to provide safe and healthy work environments, ensure sustainable operations, and positively influence our business partners to improve their social and environmental performance.
CDP also recognizes Amdocs as a leader in environmental management
Amdocs aims to minimize any negative environmental impact of its operations and is committed to minimizing pollution by reducing greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions – we calculate and report GHG emissions, covering over 96% of our business operations, including Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions – these are verified by a third-party independent auditor.
Amdocs has been consistently reporting and improving its performance since 2011 which is reflected in the fact that last year CDP also awarded Amdocs an A- score (above average) for environmental management, including GHG emissions, positioning us as a leading company in this area.
