Nearly two-thirds of the world’s largest companies have committed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) causing climate change and to increase their use of renewable energy. A report from Calvert Investments, Ceres and WWF released at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi in January, shows that in the absence of clear international political leadership on climate change, the private sector is taking a lead, recognizing that clean energy makes good business sense: a strong majority of Global 100 companies have set a GHG emissions reduction commitment, a renewable energy commitment or both.
