Industry Innovators

Climate Counts created the Industry Innovators (i2) program to help companies investing in real climate solutions deepen their market impact. The program was launched in February 2010 with the participation of six charter companies - Amtrak, Ben & Jerry's, Clif Bar, REI, Shaklee, and Timberland - who chose to go through the rigorous Climate Counts i2 scoring process, used to track the climate performance of nearly 150 other well-known companies since 2007. In June of 2011, Annie's Homegrown joined the growing list of i2 partners. Each i2 member has earned Climate Counts' top designation. i2 extends the scope of Climate Counts to track businesses not currently ranked in its annual scores.

Climate Counts uses CDP’s highly regarded climate performance score as our primary indicator of company performance on climate change. The scoring ranges from “A” (best) to “E” (worst) and assesses the level of action taken on climate change evidenced by the company's CDP response. The methodology to score company performance has been developed by CDP with input from our scoring partners, responding companies, investors, NGOs and other partners.
