Whole Foods, Apple, Need Integrated Climate Change Policy

whole_foods.jpgCeres’ 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.

  1. Hope this report is actually a reality check for Wholefoods. They do have some double standards that they need to correct. Firstly, they need to put pressure on their vendors to ensure that the packaging of the products is eco friendly and the products are mostly locally sourced if the economics of it all permits. Second and more basic, SWITCH OFF THE LIGHT & FANS IN ALL THEIR STORES AT NIGHT!!

  2. CO2 is a natural normal gas in the photosynthetic process. The earth warms and cools in natural cycles. CO2 goes up the temperature goes down! How about the past 10 years of cooling, or didn’t you notice?

    Hope Whole Foods and Apple don’t cave to pressure groups that have absolutely no control over climatic change! What a waste of time, money and energy!
