Ceres has published a top-100 ranking of companies based on their climate-change strategies.
After years of inaction, a growing number of leading U.S. companies are confronting the business challenges from global warming, recognizing that greenhouse gas limits are inevitable and that they cannot risk falling behind their international competitors in developing climate-friendly technologies. Some U.S. companies, such as General Electric, are catching up and joining DuPont and Alcoa in leading their industries. But many others are still largely ignoring the climate issue with ‘business as usual’ strategies that may be putting their companies and shareholders at risk.
Here are the top "leaders and laggards":
|Oil/Gas||BP (90 points)||ExxonMobil (35)|
|Chemical||DuPont (85)||PPG (21)|
|Metals/Mining||Alcan (77) & Alcoa (74)||Newmont (24)|
|Electric Power||AEP & Cinergy (both 73)||Sempra Energy (24)|
|Auto||Toyota (65)||Nissan (33)|
