Glens’ Garden Market has climate action in its DNA. Founder Danielle Vogel created the Washington, D.C.-based store after leaving a career working on climate change legislation in the U.S. Senate. “Glen’s exists to make climate change progress – one bite at a time – by serving Good Food from close by, and growing relationships with partners, who treat their land, their animals and their ingredients with respect,” says Vogel.
Clif Bar & Company and the EPA Center for Corporate Climate Leadership partnered to share best practice on how Clif Bar is engaging and supporting their suppliers to reduce their emissions. With a 15+ year record of supplier engagement (since 2002), the company has learned a lot on how to maximize emissions reductions across their value chain.
