Campaign: Green Watching

Climate Counts Blog

This week the Climate Counts Green Watching campaign is telling Philips they want to see a Climate Counts score. Philips pulled in $35 billion dollars in revenue last year and, according to its annual report, reduced its operational carbon footprint from 1,937 to 1,808 kilotons CO2-equivalent. The company also has an entire green campaign and green logo for its products. But is Philips a green leader or a greenwasher? The Climate Counts Green Watching campaign is calling for a Climate Counts score of Philips to help consumers see how the company stacks up against its competitors.
