    Climate Counts: Striding

    According to Climate Counts, this company is striding in the race to address climate change.

    Climate Counts is a non-profit campaign that scores companies annually on the basis of their voluntary action to reverse climate change. The Climate Counts Company Scorecard helps people vote with their dollars by making climate-conscious purchasing and investing choices that put pressure on the world’s most well-known companies to take the issue of climate change seriously.

    Launched by organics pioneer Stonyfield Farm, Climate Counts believes everyday consumers can be the most important activists in the fight against global warming. Climate Counts has currently evaluated 106 companies—representing over 3000 different brands—in thirteen major consumer sectors with plans to expand the number of companies and sectors soon.

    Climate Counts use a 0-to-100 point scale and 22 criteria to determine if companies have:

    • Measured their climate “footprint”
    • Reduced their impact on global warming
    • Supported (or suggest intent to block) progressive climate legislation
    • Publicly disclosed their climate actions clearly and comprehensively
