WWF Climate Savers Partners Claim 50 Million Tons in Emissions Cuts
From 1999 to 2010, companies involved in the World Wildlife Fund’s Climate Savers program will have reduced emissions by 50 million tons.
The program includes companies such as Coca-Cola, Catalyst, Hewlett-Packard, Johnson & Johnson, Nike and Nokia, among others.
Climate Savers, which has 21 members, marked its 10-year anniversary with a Capitol Hill press conference with the message that environmental sustainability and profitability can go hand-in-hand.
WWF also announced its newest members, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and Elopak, and their respective emissions targets:
- By 2013, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts pledged to cut its emissions by 20 percent below its 2006 levels.
- By 2011, Elopak, a beverage packaging company with customers in 100 countries, will cut CO2 emissions 15% from 2008 levels.
WWF’s Climate Savers program engages in an array of initiatives. It has published a catalog of the most energy efficient computers.
JohnsonDiversey joined the program last September. By 2013, the company says it will reduce by 8 percent GHG emissions from its operations based on 2003 level; an 89,000 ton reduction in emissions.
On March 25, WWF published a report that shows companies can significantly reduce their carbon footprint by wise choice of IT systems.
