Earth Guardian – World Wildlife Fund is Partnering with Businesses to be Climate Savers

Did you know that a desktop computer with an LCD monitor uses about 1,100kWh/year if it is left on every day? In addition to encouraging people to turn off their computers at the end of the day, including the power bar since computers and other appliances continue using electricity when still plugged in, World Wildlife Fund Canada actively works with business to address climate change. Actions like this can save about 65% of electricity use, which saves the planet, but does it help a company’s bottom line? Why is WWF encouraging businesses to be Partners and Supporters by joining the Living Planet Community, or changing their practices by becoming Climate Savers? Which types of companies are joining? Which types of companies are not interested at this time? My guest is WWF Canada’s Director of Strategic Partnerships, Monica Da Ponte.
