I am writing with news of an important development from COP15 about corporate innovation, leadership and transparency to combat climate change. Whatever the outcome from Copenhagen, one thing is clear: actions speak louder than words. We cannot rely on government to solve the climate crisis. At the COP15 CEO Roundtable, WWF Climate Saver companies like HP, Sony, Nike, IBM, Coca-Cola and Johnson Diversey reported overwhelmingly positive results on their current actions highlighting the most aggressive voluntary greenhouse gas emissions reductions effort in the world. For example, Johnson Diversey, a company with 11,000 employees and operations in 175 countries, has just announced that it will inventory the carbon footprint of every product in its portfolio: http://bit.ly/Jdaction—and place this information in the public domain. Johnson Diversey is the same company that last month announced a tripling of its emissions reductions commitment—from 8% to 25%—by 2013, due to the overwhelmingly positive response from its staff and the success of its programs. Saving the planet is good for the bottom line. Every Climate Saver company now has data to back this up. Greenhouse gas emissions should be seen as a form of waste. Reducing waste within any business process is critical to reducing costs. There is no time to lose. The time we are using now is borrowed from our grandchildren. For this information to rise above the noise, it will require clear, intelligent prose. That is why I am asking you to share this message. If enough people hear it and are moved to repeat it, the US Senate bill will be passed.
