Title: Companies in the Climate Alliance
Climate Alliance is a global partnership for the protection of the world climate; it encompasses some 1600 European members in 16 nations and den indigenous peoples of the Amazon rain forest. Climate Alliance strives to take steps to conserve the earth’s atmosphere. Climate Alliance communities commit themselves to an extensive reduction of emissions of greenhouse gasses, which are attributed to a large extent to industrial activity. Therefore the project Companies in the Climate Alliance was launched with the goal of reducing CO2 emissions and using organic and fair-trade products to contribute to a sustainable, socially compatible environmental development. The project strives to show that investments in environmental protection measures can certainly be economical and at the bottom line often save money.
