Description The Climate Savers programme is WWFs global platform to engage business and industry on climate and energy.Member companies take on two commitments: a) to become the best in class in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and b) to influence market or policy developments by promoting their vision, solutions and achievements.The intention of the programme is to inspire a change in thinking about climate solutions in companies and encourage them to transform themselves in low-carbon leaders, acting as agents of change within their sphere of influence.
Objectives Climate Savers’ objective is to recognise corporate leadership on climate solutions: develop low, zero or carbon positive business models and demonstrate that reductions in greenhouse gas emissions can go hand-in-hand with economic growth.
Activities Work with businesses and independent experts to set, implement and monitor emissions reductions and magnification targets.
