Climate Counts, a consumer guide


climate.jpg  In addition to producing yummy yogurt, Stonyfield Farm cultivates indicators for ranking companies’ climate policies.  Their new guide, Climate Counts, gives grades of “Stuck,” “Starting,” and “Striding.”

Based on 22 criteria, the guide scores on a scale of 1-100 companies’ progress in measuring, reducing, supporting progressive legislation and publicly disclosing their contribution to global warming. 

For some examples:  Burger King is “stuck” at zero, Google is just  “starting” with a score of 17 and Nike is “striding” with a surprisingly high score of 73.  Stonyfield also ranked themselves as “striding” with 63 points.
