How natural companies are measuring environmental moves in 10 key areas

One year after 324 companies pledged to lower their carbon footprints, 71% of them are taking action.

Nearly three-quarters of the companies that promised to take action to help reverse climate change last year are actively making good on their commitments in 2019.

They're finding the most success in reducing food waste and the least in policy implementation, although there was a significant increase in the number of companies working toward policy changes since the last tracking cycle. Food waste is also the easiest for companies to quantify, whereas environmental impact in terms of packaging and deforestation is proving to be harder for companies to track.

324 companies–largely manufacturers, retailers and brands–were given the chance to commit to all, some or one of nine practical climate initiatives via the Climate Collaborative. They can then work to scale innovative solutions with the end goal of making their operations measureably more environmentally friendly. 2019 marks the second annual tracking cycle update for this project.
