Tell Costco to count and cut its carbon footprint

Costco CEO Craig Jelinek and members of the Costco Board of Directors,

Scientists around the world have agreed that we need to cut carbon emissions in half by 2030 to prevent the worst effects of climate change. As a result, many companies have already calculated their carbon emissions and set reduction targets with the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).

Costco has not. In fact, even Costco has acknowledged that it isn't counting the overwhelming bulk of its emissions. These emissions are produced indirectly, in part from the deforestation involved in producing items like beef, tissues and much more. We urge you to rapidly disclose all of Costco's carbon emissions and set science-based targets to reduce emissions.
