Two pieces of good news on the climate front: Earlier this month, New York State passed the most ambitious state-level climate goals to date and a new study shows that one-sixth of the global economy is covered by net zero carbon goals. 

We are so proud of the leading role the natural products industry is taking on climate and we hope that YOU can help us grow this movement!

Our request is simple – just send this letter to 3-5 of your industry peers and/or suppliers and ask them to join you. Just let me know if you need this letter in another format.

We're looking forward to spotlighting anyone who joins us at Expo East during our Collaborating on Climate session with Stonyfield, Seventh Generation and Glen’s Garden market on Thursday, September 12. We hope to see you there--RSVP here!





Welcome to the newest companies making commitments, Skagit Valley Malting, Nuun & Company, Blue Moon Goodness, Evergreen Innovations, and Rhythm Superfoods! Click here for a complete list of the companies that have made commitments to date. 

SPOTLIGHT: Engage Your Peers & Suppliers! 


  We're excited to share a new resource for companies interested in engaging their supply chain on climate. We've drafted this letter you can share with your suppliers asking them to join you in making a forward-looking commitment on climate. We hope you'll encourage them to use the Climate Collaborative as a roadmap for action and to make a public commitment that will give them an onramp to free resources, recognition, and collaborative opportunities.
