Key Insight:

As the effects of climate change worsen, the onus is increasingly placed on brands to become more sustainable.  To better determine which brands are doing their part, sustainability assessment group CDP and environmental nonprofit World Wildlife Fund (WWF) teamed up to create a temperature ratings dataset that scores 4,000 global companies based on their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and how much they need to cut them.
