If your company is a supplier to corporate clients, be ready to discuss environmental business practices. That's the message from a survey by consulting firm A.T. Kearney (http://www.atkearney.com) and the Carbon Disclosure Project, a nonprofit organization that collects climate change data from the corporate world. According to the survey, 63% of the 44 responding member companies have a formal, documented corporate climate change strategy; 37% have general guidelines; and 90% have plans to reduce carbon emissions. They're looking to their partners to follow their “green” example: 6% are ready to de-select suppliers that won't manage carbon emissions and 56% plan to do so in the future.
