  • Climate Counts: Striding
    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

  • EPA Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative - Champions
    EPA Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative - Champions

    Under the Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative (SDSI), EPA's Design for the Environment (DfE) Program recognizes environmental leaders who voluntarily commit to use safer surfactants in all their products. Safer surfactants break down quickly to non-polluting compounds and help protect aquatic life in both fresh and salt water. Nonylphenol ethoxylates (also known as NPEs) are an example of a surfactant class that does not meet the definition of a safer surfactant. The Design for the Environment Program has identified safer alternative surfactants through partnerships with industry and environmental advocates. These safer alternatives are comparable in cost and are readily available. CleanGredients is an on-line resource for finding safer surfactants (visit www.CleanGredients.org).
