Supporting WWF’s Climate Savers Programme
WWF’s Climate Savers Programme is a global leadership platform which positions multinational corporations at the forefront of the low-carbon economy. Since the launch of WWF Climate Savers programme in 1999, over 30 leading companies have entered in a Climate Savers agreement with WWF. The platform calls for true commitment because the member companies set sector-leading targets for greenhouse gas emission reduction. Reduction targets are established for scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions in line with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. At the launch of WWF Climate Savers the original focus was on scope 1 and 2 emissions but as the programme has evolved, scope 3 target setting and reporting has become more central to the programme's commitments.
WWF Climate Savers companies know that cutting carbon emissions and spurring economic growth can go hand in hand and they prove it every day by tackling emissions reductions in practical and profitable ways. Ecofys has been associated with the WWF Climate Savers Programme for several years. Ecofys was involved in developing the Climate Savers target-setting methodology and the manual used by third-party experts to monitor and verify compliance with Climate Savers agreements. Ecofys has provided support to more than ten companies which have joined the programme; among them SKF, Volvo, KPN, Alpro, Eneco, Tetra Pak, Lafarge, Novo Nordisk and Sofidel. Additionally, Ecofys has verified the reporting of greenhouse gas reductions for several of Climate Savers companies and has supported Climate Savers companies with specific assignments, including Nokia, Coca Cola, Nokia Siemens Network and Elektrolux. The work of Ecofys helps maintain transparency and ensure a high level of accountability, which are the cornerstones of the programme.
