The fourth consecutive Corporate Information Transparency Index (CITI) annual report was released on October 13, 2017 in Beijing. The report shows that China’s sharp strengthening of environmental supervision is prompting more brands to recognize supply chain environmental risks, but insufficient capacity has become a bottleneck hindering companies from going green.

The CITI index is the world’s first quantitative evaluation system based on the environmental management performance of brands’ supply chains in China. It was jointly developed by the Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs (IPE) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). The CITI uses disclosed data including government supervision, online monitoring, and corporate disclosure to carry out a dynamic evaluation.

This year’s CITI was released at the 2017 Green Supply Chain Forum, which was jointly convened in Beijing on October 13, 2017 by the China-ASEAN Environmental Cooperation Center, Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs (IPE), SEE Foundation and Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). The Forum brought together representatives from government, business and environmental groups to discuss green supply chain-related policies and practices.
