Climate Counts and U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce Institute
In 2017, Climate Counts joined forces with the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce to provide additional educational climate outreach to businesses throughout the nation. In building upon the existing network, Climate Counts will be a key force in providing educational materials and climate information to growing and diverse business sectors. With our new partnership, we will reach out to local leaders, non-profits, constituents, and small, medium and large businesses through the existing chapters and branches of the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce. Climate Counts is bringing our years of leadership and knowledge of Climate Change and impact to the table to help lead the charge on providing the most current messages and innovative ideas to this larger network. With the current national movement to reduce funding to the EPA, in addition to the declaration to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement, our outreach is now more important than ever before!
In order for the U.S. Green Chamber to effectively advocate with their business network, leaders within various industries must be informed. Climate Counts will play that role, along with bringing key leaders together.

Climate Counts is a collaborative effort to bring consumers and companies together to address solutions around global climate change.
Starting in 2007, we were a world-renowned leader with our CDP company scoring data rating the world’s largest companies on their commitment to addressing climate change.
When consumers take action and raise their voices on issues that matter to them, businesses pay attention. Now we are taking those years of climate knowledge and extending it to a larger network.
We have no interest in doom-and-gloom environmental messaging and instead believe that positive change starts with a hopeful outlook that real change is possible and that the relationship between companies and consumers can become more substantive and constructive.
