After signing a Climate Savers agreement, each of these companies becomes a leader in terms of reducing emissions of greenhouse gases.

The agreement involves negotiations between WWF, the company and independent technical experts, and is tailored to the circumstances and operating sector of the company. The target is demonstrably more ambitious than any previously planned or communicated by the company.

Climate Savers agreements provide attractive solutions to climate change. Attractive because they save money, drive profitability, enhance reputation and demonstrate corporate social responsibility to communities and staff. The company benefits and the planet benefits.

Climate legislation is getting ever tougher. Shareholders, customers and the media want to know whether companies are facing up to the realities of climate change risk. WWF’s Climate Savers program positions enterprises strongly andsecurely to work proactively and constructively with these serious challenges.

The solutions that companies have developed as part of their Climate Savers engagement include:
  • Energy efficiency of products
  • Energy efficiency in processes or facilities
  • Energy-saving products
  • Transport efficiency
  • Fuel switching
  • Conversion to renewable energy
  • Developing and implementing carbon risk analysis tools.
These are strong foundations for reducing emissions. The Climate Savers companies build on them in ways that are also innovative and dynamic.

The corporations whose commitments, creativity and achievements are highlighted by WWF’s Climate Savers program have found that their efforts to reduce their climate impact have had positive impacts.
