Slow Company Gains Seen in Latest Climate Counts Scorecard ,

David M. 65°

The latest Climate Counts scorecard shows that companies continue to improve their climate commitment, but their pace is far slower than what is required to meet the climate challenge. The group – a non-profit launched in 2007 with support from organics pioneer Stonyfield Farm – announced the updated evaluations of 47 companies in the pharmaceutical, home and office furnishing, toys and children’s equipment and large appliance sectors (another group of nearly 100 companies scored by the group in 12 other sectors will be released in November). This round of scoring showed broad improvement, with 30 companies increasing their score; Kenmore (Sears Holdings Corporation, up 29 points), Lego (up 22 points) and AB Electrolux (up 19 points) improved the most. Many improvements were small, however, with 32 of 47 companies either losing ground, not improving, or raising their scores less than five points.
