A report in EEP (European Environmental Press) publication ‘Clean Tech Europe’ says that companies taking part in the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Climate Saver programmes, have avoided the emission of over 100 million tonnes of CO2 between 1999 and 2011. The report points out that this is equivalent to double the current annual emissions of Switzerland. If those companies which have signed up to the programmes continue to make savings on this scale, by 2020 the total figure could amount to over 350 million tonnes, meaning that Spain would be an ‘annual comparison’ country. Amongst internationally-known companies taking part are Coca-Cola, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Nike and the Nokia Siemens Network.
