Industry Innovators (i2)
Climate Counts is a non-profit organization that annually scores the world’s most well-known companies on their commitment to addressing climate change. Launched in 2007 with support of organics pioneer Stonyfield Farm, the Climate Counts Company Scorecard has gained strong worldwide media attention and has been widely acknowledged as one of the most useful and accessible tools for measuring corporate climate responsibility.
Increasingly, companies not evaluated as part of Climate Counts annual scoring process are requesting rating, verification, peer benchmarking, trends, strategies and other services from Climate Counts. The i2 program now makes the Climate Counts rating process and subsequent score widely available to companies throughout the global marketplace. Amtrak, Ben & Jerry’s, Clif Bar, REI, Shaklee and Timberland are charter member companies that have recognized the program’s potential to enable them to:
• Demonstrate environmental market leadership
• Develop a roadmap to guide company climate activities
• Deliver cost savings through reduced energy and resource use
• Increase brand value
• Provide consumer and stakeholder satisfaction
