A full half of multinational companies plan to select suppliers based on carbon performance, according to a study by Carbon Trust Advisory.
 
The research says that 29% of suppliers are likely to lose their places on green supply chains if they do not have adequate performance records on carbon. The research also finds that 58% of multinationals will in the future pay a premium for low carbon suppliers to reduce their overall corporate carbon footprints.
