Companies Awarded for Fighting Against Climate Change


medalThe list of companies taking a stand with Climate Collaborative against climate change in their business practices grows larger and larger every year. Among these companies, eight are being specially recognized and awarded this year with the National Co+op Grocers (NCG) Climate Collaborative Award. On March 7 at Natural Products Expo West, the largest natural products industry trade show, these eight award recipients were announced.

“Our industry’s moment to work in close unity to reverse climate change is here, and we applaud the 2018 award winners for leading the way,” said Chief Executive Officer, National Co+op Grocers, Robynn Shrader, on the progress of these companies.

Each of the awarded companies were nominated by their peers for expanding their business boundaries in at least one of nine areas that the Climate Collaborative has identified as having potential to slow or reverse the effects of climate change.

The awards are focused around nine areas in agriculture (carbon farming), increasing energy efficiency, reducing food waste, eliminating commodity-driven deforestation, reducing the climate impact of packaging, advocating for responsible policies, committing to 100 percent renewable power, reducing short-lived climate pollutant emissions and transportation-related emissions.

The eight companies were awarded through three different categories: Outstanding Company, Influencer, or Outstanding Value Chain Engagement. Here are the 2018 National Co+op Grocers Climate Collaborative Award recipients:
