These companies are setting a GOOD climate example

Need some ideas on how to adjust or improve your greenhouse gas emissions reduction strategy? The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has just recognized eight companies for actually ACHIEVING the goals they have set as part of its Climate Leaders initiative.

Those companies are:

  • Anheuser-Busch Companies (yes, your Bud is greener and it isn't even St. Patrick's Day)
  • Bank of America (yes, some POSITIVE news)
  • MillerCoors (no surprise, Coors has been the politically correct choice since I was in college)
  • Eastman Kodak (something to smile about)
  • First Environment (the environmental engineering and management strategy company)
  • Gap (the clothing giant)
  • Roche Group (the big healthcare concern)
  • Shaklee

The links for each company are NOT simply for their Web site, they are directly to the information about the project or projects that helped win them recognition, so they represent valuable resources for your sustainability teams to study.

Here's the index link for ALL of the EPA case studies that are available. I'm going to start picking apart a few of these in subsequent entries. There are 275 companies currently participating in the Climate Leaders program, which started in 2002.
