#CarbonScore

Climate Counts presents...

The world's first science-based ranking of corporate carbon emissions

If a company claims that it plans to reduce its carbon footprint 15% by 2020, is that good? Better yet, is it enough? The purpose of this study was to analyze the greenhouse gas emissions of 100 global corporations between 2005 and 2012 to determine their performance against science-based goals that seek to limit climate change to 2° Celsius (3.6° Fahrenheit).
