Mission Statement

Climate Counts is a collaborative effort to bring consumers and companies together in the fight against global climate change. We are a nonprofit organization funded by Stonyfield Farm, Inc. and launched in collaboration with Clean Air-Cool Planet.

We have come together with a shared conviction that the time for talk about global warming has passed, and that significant corporate, consumer, and political action is now necessary. Our goal is to motivate deeper awareness among consumers-not only that the issue of climate change demands their attention, but also that they have the power to support companies that take climate change seriously - and avoid those that don't. When consumers take action and raise their voices on issues that matter to them, businesses pay attention. A loud and clear consumer movement that demands more aggressive corporate action on climate change will not fall on deaf ears.

Description

Climate Counts is an environmental nonprofit that scores the world's largest companies annually on their climate impact. Our scorecard (launched in June 2007) helps people vote with their dollars by making climate-conscious purchasing and investing choices that put pressure on companies to take the issue of climate change seriously. Climate Counts believes everyday consumers can be the most important activists in the fight against global warming. We've currently evaluated 106 companies in thirteen major consumer sectors with plans to expand the number of companies and sectors.
