Take the Climate Counts i2 Challenge

Climate Counts is a non-profit campaign that scores companies annually on the basis of their voluntary action to reverse climate change. The Climate Counts scorecard helps people vote with their dollars by making climate-conscious purchasing and investing choices that drive the world’s most well-known companies to take the issue of climate change seriously.

Timberland is proud to be a member of the Climate Counts Industry Innovators program (i2) — an initiative which has helped to make the Climate Counts scorecard available and useful to many more companies.  Along with other i2 companies (Amtrak, Ben & Jerry’s, Clif Bar, REI and Shaklee), Timberland supports the Climate Counts mission of educating consumers while holding our brand and our business to the highest standard of climate leadership.  In fact, Timberland received the highest score in the apparel / accessories category (86 points out of 100) from Climate Counts for our commitment to fighting global warming!

Now it’s your turn to show your support for i2 companies and climate consciousness by taking the Climate Counts i2 Challenge:

  • Snap a photo of yourself, supporting one of the i2 companies.  The photo could be you wearing Timberland Earthkeepers boots, riding on the Amtrak, eating Ben & Jerry’s … you get the idea.
  • Email the photo with a brief description to Climate Counts (info@climatecounts.org) with “Climate Counts i2 Challenge” in the subject line.
  • Don’t be late: all photo submissions must be received by Tuesday, May 1.

All photos will be compiled and added to the Climate Counts Facebook page and blog; the coolest photo will win a $50 gift card to the i2 company of your choice!
