What is the Tracking Progress Update?

The Climate Collaborative’s (CC) Tracking Progress Update highlights the type and amount of progress that committed companies are making around their climate action commitments. We ask these questions via a short annual survey. We ask companies where in the implementation process they are, whether they are quantifying emissions reductions, and for details on their progress. Companies are expected to provide information for each commitment they have made; quantitative data is welcome but not required.

This update is the primary way we are able to assess progress in the industry on an annual basis. 2019 is the second tracking progress cycle for the CC; we asked all companies that made commitments before December 31, 2018 to respond, a total of 324 companies.
