Score card confirms airlines and fast food companies as anti-climate
Grabbing that burger in the departure lounge before boarding your flight has just gotten worse. Farming the meat on your bun, and the emissions of your plane are among the top climate killers – that much was known. But now a new score card reveals that the companies in the business are not much better when it comes to their own climate credentials.
With little or no visible efforts to curb their carbon footprint, Wendy’s and Burger King are among those placed lowest in ClimateCount’s ranking of corporate commitment to climate protection around the world. McDonald’s, although placed marginally higher, outshines all others only by registering the largest annual drop in point score of any of the 145 companies surveyed.
Airlines do fare better on average. But particularly US airlines are among the most die-hart opponents of public policy moves towards climate protection.
Here are all the details and the ranking in the ClimateCounts.org scorecard flipbook
