Company Scorecard Report

Consumers and Companies


Together Fighting to Stop Climate Change
June 2007
Company Scorecard Report
The Impact of Companies—and Consumers—on Global Climate Change
The scientific case on global warming is no longer in dispute. Earlier this year, the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a group of hundreds of the world’s foremost
climate scientists, concluded for the first time that global warming is “unequivocal” and that
human activity is the main driver. Most scientists estimate that we have a 10-year window to
significantly reduce our global warming pollution if we are to avoid the most dangerous
global warming impacts.
Major companies can have a profound influence in reducing the climate crisis; the creation,
manufacturing, distribution, marketing and sale of products all contribute significantly to
global warming pollution. While a number of companies are playing a leadership role in
addressing climate change, others are behind the curve.
Meanwhile, an increasing number of consumers are making environmentally conscious
purchasing and investing decisions. Yet these decisions have been limited to products that
are transparently climate-friendly or energy-efficient, such as hybrid cars, compact
fluorescent light bulbs, and energy-efficient appliances. Consumers have not yet had a way
to make climate-friendly decisions on a host of other everyday items—from which cell phone
to use to which fast-food franchise to get their burgers. The new Climate Counts Company
Scorecard now makes this possible.

The Climate Counts Company Scorecard


The Climate Counts Company Scorecard provides consumers with an objective, balanced
way to gauge which companies are seriously committed to reversing climate change—and
which ones are not. The Scorecard rates companies annually on their practices to reduce
global warming; the higher the score, the greater the company’s commitment to reversing
climate change.
Our full scorecard ranks 56 companies in eight major consumer sectors, among them
Electronics, Household Products, Apparel, and Food Products. Companies were chosen
based on their popular household use among mainstream consumers in North America and
the United Kingdom and for being market leaders in their respective sectors.

Summary of Results
The results of the first round of Climate Counts’ company scoring vary from sector to sector,
reflecting both the different degrees to which corporations focus on climate issues and
climate reporting and the extent to which different sectors have an impact on climate change.
The scores offer a snapshot of a moment in time on a dynamic issue among a representative
set of large, well-known companies. It should be noted that companies were not chosen for
the first round of scoring because they represent sectors believed to have the greatest
adverse impact on climate change. That said, certain manufacturing sectors have responded
more quickly and extensively to their environmental impact and to engaging consumers and
investors on the climate change issue, compared to more information-driven sectors. For
example, a higher percentage of companies in the Electronics/Computer sector appear to
have made significant progress in addressing climate change than those in the Media or
Internet/Software sectors.
Analyzed as a whole, the track records on climate change of all the companies Climate
Counts scored in this first release make it clear that there is significant work to be done
across all sectors.
The company with the highest overall score on a scale of 0 to 100 (100 being the highest) is
electronics giant Canon with a score of 77. The only other three companies to score 70 or
above were Nike (Apparel/Accessories) with 73, Unilever (Food Products) with 71, and IBM
(Electronics/Computer) with 70. Twelve companies scored a total of 2 points or lower, with four
of those companies falling within the six-company Food Services sector and three of them falling
within the seven-company Apparel/Accessories sector. Six out of 12 companies in the
Electronics/Computer sector scored 50 points or higher.
Notably, a reputation for product and marketing innovation does not necessarily correlate with a
company’s leadership on climate action or climate reporting. For example, high-tech movers and
shakers like Apple and Amazon.com are behind the curve when it comes to taking meaningful
action to address climate change relative to other companies in their respective sectors.
Similarly, a long-time track record of social responsibility does not always translate into climate
leadership. Levi Strauss, a recognized leader in progressive labor practices and in asserting
these practices along its supply chain, has yet to publicly articulate a clear position on climate
protection or implement a measurable and public corporate climate change initiative.
A number of the companies we examined had environmentally friendly policies and programs in
force, but those policies did not guarantee that the companies would rate high on the Climate
Counts scorecard. This was because many of the programs we reviewed appeared limited in
scope, and not of the scale necessary to truly make a measurable difference in reducing climate
change. That said, Climate Counts certainly applauds general corporate environmental initiatives
but challenges companies that have them to harness those programs to form the foundation of
robust and meaningful climate action strategies. Clearly, those companies have a tremendous
opportunity to make progress on climate change quickly and credibly.

APPAREL/ACCESSORIES
Fashion changes at a notoriously break-neck pace; what was
“in” one season is “out” another. It follows that the companies APPAREL/ACCESSORIES Score

That said, the Apparel/Accessories sector’s track record on the Liz Claiborne 15
issue can be characterized as bipolar, with notable leadership Limited Brands 5
on climate issues from some companies, and unimpressive VF Corporation 2
showings from others. The sector has faced and dealt with
Levi Strauss 1
scrutiny on developing-world labor issues for years, but has
yet to collectively give the same attention to climate change— Jones Apparel Group 0
which may explain the scoring divide in the sector.
Climate Counts ranked seven companies that fall within the
Apparel/Accessories sector: Nike, Gap, Inc., Liz Claiborne,
Limited Brands, VF Corporation, Levi Strauss, and Jones Apparel Group.
Of these companies, Nike leads the Apparel/Accessories sector and is among the top three of
all 56 scored companies with a score of 73. The second highest scorer in the sector is Gap,
Inc. with 39 points, as a result of its general efforts to measure emissions, set goals and report.
At 15 points, Liz Claiborne falls short of what could be considered leadership but has begun to
implement energy efficiency programs and renewable energy initiatives that distinguish it from
companies that scored at the bottom of the sector: Limited Brands, VF Corporation, Levi
Strauss, and Jones Apparel Group.

BEVERAGES-BEER
Most would agree a bottle of beer is nothing without CO2, but BEVERAGES - BEER Score
it certainly doesn’t mean that beverage and beer companies

shouldn’t do more to reduce carbon emissions in their
production processes to affect climate change. Climate Anheuser-Busch 29
Counts scored three of the world’s largest beer producers— Molson Coors Brewing 20
Anheuser-Busch, Molson Coors, and SABMiller—to see if
climate-conscious consumers had a clear choice.
Research found that the London-based SABMiller and maker
of the well-known Miller brands currently outpaces rivals Anheuser-Bush and Molson Coors
Brewing when it comes to leadership on the issue. The climate difference? SABMiller has set
the sector standard for measuring its production of greenhouse gas emissions. It has also set
clear and substantial reduction goals and demonstrated a commitment to engaging
stakeholders in its efforts to curb global warming pollution.
Anheuser-Busch and Molson Coors are making strides in building their own foundations for
increasing their climate focus. These developments promise to make future rounds of scoring in
this sector worth watching.
ELECTRONICS/COMPUTER
The companies in the Electronics/Computer sector require a
significant amount of energy to make the products that keep ELECTRONICS Score
us connected. And the products that keep us connected Canon 77
require a lot of energy to operate. For the most part, the IBM 70

Packard and Sony follow to make this the sector with the
highest percentage of companies to earn at least 50 points
(out of 100 possible). Five more electronics companies—
Dell, Hitachi, Siemens, Samsung and Nokia—are well on their way to moving beyond the
starting gate in taking responsibility for climate protection. Apple stands out among the scored
companies in this sector by lagging so significantly, 27 points, behind the next highest scorer.
Apple has recently announced plans to map a greener future, which has the potential to
change this sector’s profile.

MEDIA
The flow of words, ideas, and entertainment would not
appear on first glance to generate pollution that would MEDIA Score
contribute to global warming. But major media companies

Climate Counts ranked six companies that fall within the
Media sector: General Electric, News Corporation, Disney,
Time Warner, Viacom and CBS.
Some media companies, while perhaps best known for their role in worldwide
communications, are large conglomerates that have holdings in scores of other businesses.
General Electric is one such diversified company and the parent company of such well-known
media properties as NBC and Universal. It also leads the way among companies categorized
in the scorecard’s Media sector, for its inclusion of climate protection in its overall business
strategy, its detailed measurement of its emissions, and its strong goals to reduce its impact
on global warming
News Corporation—the parent company of such media brands as Fox and DirecTV—has
moved aggressively in recent months to make climate protection central to its future corporate
plans. At 57 points, the company is nearing GE’s current total of 61. The sector’s third-ranked
company, Disney, is far below the top two but has demonstrated an intention to make up for
lost time.
The bottom three scored companies—Time Warner, Viacom, and CBS—have not yet made
significant efforts in the area of climate control. While not a high greenhouse gas-emitting
manufacturing sector, the Media sector yields great potential to provide useful, substantive
information on issues like climate change to the public at large. Companies that are leading
this sector are working to incorporate strong climate change programming into their schedules
and portfolios.
FOOD PRODUCTS
The Food Products sector is made up of major companies

Unilever, the maker of everything from Lipton to Slimfast, Kellogg 24
ranks among the top three scored companies not only within ConAgra Foods 6
the food sector but for all sectors reviewed. Unilever was Sara Lee 2
awarded 71 points for its detailed reporting, solid corporate
structure for high-level oversight of climate issues, goal-
setting, and reduction efforts thus far. The Coca-Cola
Company is also among the sector’s top tier, with 57 points. The publicly held Groupe Danone
scored 50 points. Stonyfield Farm, which is a subsidiary of Groupe Danone and the principal
funder of Climate Counts, earned 63 points.
The sector’s notable middle tier is comprised of Kraft Foods, Nestle, General Mills, PepsiCo, and
Kellogg, respectively, with the principal distinction among them being the degree to which each
company has set public reduction goals and targets and is working to clearly communicate their
efforts to the public in a timely and open manner. ConAgra Foods with 6 points and Sara Lee
with 2 points occupy the sector’s bottom tier and have made limited or no public efforts to
engage in a widening discourse on climate change and corporate climate initiative.

FOOD SERVICES

climate change.
Climate Counts ranked six companies that fall within the
Food Services sector: Starbucks, McDonald’s, Yum! Brands, Burger King, Darden Restaurants
and Wendy’s International.
Starbucks, the only coffee company included in the scorecard’s Food Services sector, earned
46 points on the 100-point scale for its efforts to incorporate climate change into its
increasingly comprehensive corporate social responsibility profile. While the company’s
reduction goals are still loosely defined, Starbucks has asserted itself in the policy and
emissions accounting arenas and by establishing clear links between its own efforts to reduce
its climate footprint and its communication with its employees, customers and suppliers. Its
efforts put it ahead of more traditional fast-food companies ranked in the sector.
Among the scored fast-food companies, McDonald’s ranks significantly ahead of Burger King,
Wendy’s, and Yum! Brands (the parent company of Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and Kentucky Fried
Chicken). Unlike its rivals, McDonald’s is at the beginning stages of measuring its global
warming pollution. It has formulated loose goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and taken
preliminary actions to achieve reductions, notably with respect to restaurant energy efficiency
and biofuel and refrigerant innovations. The company has also openly acknowledged that it has
an impact on climate change and has begun reporting to consumers and investors on its actions
to reduce global warming pollution. Like Burger King and Wendy’s, Darden Restaurants, the
parent company of such familiar restaurants as Red Lobster and Olive Garden, has not yet
articulated that climate change is among the societal issues it has prioritized.
HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTS
Most of the necessities of day-to-day life fall within the
Household Products sector—among them, toothpaste, toilet HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTS Score

Climate Counts evaluated six companies in the Household Avon 11
Products sector: Avon, Clorox, Colgate-Palmolive, Kimberly Clorox 1
Clark, L’Oreal, and Procter & Gamble.
The highest score in the sector is not among the top ten
scores overall, yet Procter & Gamble with 53 points has set
the pace among the six household product companies currently scored by Climate Counts.
The producer of Crest toothpaste and Tide detergent, among numerous other familiar
products, P&G has solid public reporting, demonstrated climate protection actions, and
emissions accounting that put it just ahead of a cluster of three other leading household
products companies—L’Oreal (45 points), Kimberly Clark (41 points), and Colgate-Palmolive
(40 points). All three of those companies are within the top half of scored companies overall
and should improve with a deeper commitment to detailed reporting and public engagement
on climate issues. The absence of public accounting for greenhouse gas emissions and
reported goal-setting to reduce emissions keeps Avon, with 10 points, and Clorox, with 1 point,
at the bottom of this sector.

INTERNET/SOFTWARE
The Internet/Software sector represents one of the most
explosive growth sectors in the nation’s increasingly INTERNET/SOFTWARE Score
information-based economy. The new media sector employs Yahoo! 36

companies have grown, they have also come to have an
impact on climate change.
Climate Counts ranked five companies that fall within the
Internet/Software sector: Yahoo!, Microsoft, Google, eBay and Amazon.com.
At the top of the scored sector is Yahoo!, thanks to its top brass’s commitment to a major
companywide climate protection strategy, complete with solid greenhouse gas emissions
accounting. But its 36 points are far below leaders in other scorecard sectors. Yahoo! has
been committed to offsetting emissions, but in the Climate Counts scoring system, offsetting
emissions does not earn as many points on the Climate Counts rating system as do other
activities that directly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Microsoft—at 31 points—follows Yahoo! in the sector, with clear greenhouse gas emissions
accounting. But Microsoft falls short of providing clear plans for reducing its impact. Google
has also begun to move forward, but because it does not provide a public accounting of its
emissions, it falls behind other sector leaders. eBay and Amazon.com, despite being clear
powerhouses in the arena of online commerce, have not yet translated their spirit of innovation
to taking public corporate action on climate protection.
How We Rank the Companies
Our company ratings are based on a rigorous scoring process that screens publicly available information on each company
against 22 criteria drawn from scientifically accepted climate and corporate performance tools. We use these 22 criteria to
measure the following four key benchmarks:
How well does the company M E A S U R E its climate “footprint”?
How much has the company done to R E D U C E its global warming pollution?
Does the company explicitly S U P P O R T (or express intent to block) progressive climate legislation?
How clearly and comprehensively does the company publicly D I S C L O S E its climate protection efforts?
