Whole Foods, Apple, Need Integrated Climate Change Policy
Ceres’ President Mindy S. Lubber writes in Leading Green that Whole Foods recently received low scores from a new report by the Ceres investor coalition because the company lacks a holistic strategy on climate change.
Lubber says it is encouraging that the company is buying renewable energy certificates to power all of its stores, but writes that “it is discouraging that the company has not measured its overall greenhouse gas emissions or set targets to reduce those emissions. The company has also done relatively little to improve energy efficiency or promote products with lower carbon footprints.”
Apple was also criticized for the lack of an integrated climate change policy. Lubber says both companies have weak public disclosure of their climate change policies which makes it “impossible for investors and consumers to get a clear picture of their performance.
Dell executives recently knocked Apple’s green advertising and wrote that Apple hasn’t stated any goals, but just made green claims that Dell says are not accurate.
