Mario Camacho obtains excellent results in an environmental project by Walmart
Since September 2007, Walmart, the largest distribution chain in the world, has been a member of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). This initiative aims to measure greenhouse gas emissions and the amount of energy used to manufacture products throughout their supply chain, including acquisition, manufacturing and distribution processes. An essential first step under this ambitious project consisted of obtaining the cooperation of its suppliers, requesting their assistance to search for new and innovative ways to make these processes more efficient.
Angel Camacho is always willing to cooperate with its customers and on this occasion our subsidiary Mario Camacho Foods and the environmental department of Angel Camacho have been working together with Walmart under the CDP Project. The approach consisted of an analysis of the different ratios of each of the suppliers that make up the supply chain. The results obtained by our company in this analysis, which were published last November, have exceeded all expectations, with scores above the average for the rest of the Walmart supply chain. High scores were received for the following variables:
- Evaluation of the quality and exhaustiveness of the answers given by companies, where we obtained 99/100 points when the average for the supply chain was 60.
- The category of strategy, risks and opportunities, where we obtained 98/100 points when the average for the supply chain was 52.
- The category of emissions, where we obtained 100/100 points when the average for the supply chain was 55.
- Analysis of the evaluation of actions carried out during the year that contribute to mitigate climate change and promote adaptation and transparency. This ratio was scored according to different categories (A, B, C, D, E). Our company was classified in the A category when the average for the supply chain was D.
Without a doubt, Angel Camacho has demonstrated once again its leadership in the field of environmental protection.
