In tandem with the beginning of COP25, the UN climate conference, the project Compiling the Public Picture: The Top 100 Greenhouse Gas Emitters was launched, to focus research on large companies who have the greatest leverage and responsibility. Through this project, volunteers and students are collecting research and data from a wide range of methodologies and putting them on WikiRate.org for open analysis, where citizens, alongside policy makers and investors, can learn concretely about companies’ impacts.
The project encourages people to use their voice to reach out to companies that are doing or publishing clearly enough.
In addition to capturing company performance data, relationships between companies and investors, and companies and suppliers will be mapped, to allow a wider range of organizations to take responsibility for their value chain and make needed improvements.
