UK-based independent ‘Climate-Change’-news provider ClimateChangeCorp.com today published a list of the Top 20 climate-friendly companies, large and small, honouring two corporate members of the Nanotechnology Industries Association as environmental leaders:

  • Unilever is a recognised leader in the ‘Household Goods’-sector, in recognition for reducing the carbon dioxide emissions in its manufacturing operations by more than 30% in the last decade, sourcing nearly 15% of it energy from renewable sources in 2006 alone, and for introducing low-energy ice-cream cabinets that use hydrocarbons instead of CFCs or HCFC as refrigerants.
  • Johnson Matthey, mentioned as an ‘Opportunity Pick’ in the ‘Transport’-sector, is celebrated for supplying platinum to the inventor of the fuel cell in 1839, and since then establishing itself as the world’s largest supplier of catalysts and components for fuel cells.
