"The Climate Savers program is a very exclusive club," said Peter Beaudoin, CEO of WWF-China. "Only companies agreeing to be industry leaders in cutting CO2 emissions and supporting growth of clean, renewable energy are accepted as members. China has global manufacturing leaders, is beginning to have global innovation leaders, and now is beginning to have global leaders in the fight against climate change as well."
