The solution:

EcoAct worked alongside Compass Group to improve key sections of the response where they could potentially gain the maximum amount of points. In particular we focused on helping Compass Group report on carbon reduction targets and initiatives; and we also worked with senior managers to review potential climate change risks and opportunities which the business may face in the future.

By gaining a strong understanding of Compass Group’s organisational structure, the environmental performance of their key competitors and relevant activity in the food supply and catering industry, we identified the key risks and opportunities that climate change posed to their business.

The result

  • Higher quality CDP submission
  • Better understanding of the potential future impact of climate risk
  • Identification of potential benefits to capitalise on
  • Improved commercial advantage for the Group.
