Thanks to your support, 2010 was a banner year for Climate Counts. With four years of scores under our belts, thousands of consumers raising their voices through our website and free iPhone app, and the launching of a new program recognizing Industry Innovators, we’re having a bigger impact on the marketplace than ever. Eleven companies (nearly 8% of companies scored) now score higher than 75 points on the Climate Counts company scorecard and the average company score has improved from 31 points in 2007 to 50.1 points in 2010.   We couldn’t have done it without you and we need your sustained energy in 2011.

Climate Counts company scores let you see which companies are showing true climate action by scoring them on the four key benchmarks to climate leadership: reviewing emissions, reducing emissions, public policy positions, and transparency. So when it comes to those necessity purchases, you have the power to use your dollars to support those companies that reflect your own concerns about climate change. But the fight against climate change doesn’t stop at your wallet, Climate Counts gives you the power to “raise your voice” directly to these same global corporations through e-mail and Twitter.
