ABOUT

In late 2016, Mike Shatzkin and I, both from the world of publishing, began thinking about how to contribute to the problems posed by climate change. We officially “launched” CCR in the summer of 2021, with the help of many people and organizations. Its intention has always been two fold: to provide credible information and links to deeper dives AND suggested actions.

MISSION STATEMENT It has hardly changed in the last five years. We believe if you know more, you can and will do more. We also believe that if you do more, you will want to know and ultimately do even more.

FOUNDERS Mike and I care about facts and we care about truth. We also like to get things done.

BOARD OF ADVISORS Scientists, journalists, advocates. They have all brought crucial perspectives to us as we grew.

OUR TEAM From our art director and website developer to our editors, photographers, and bloggers, we couldn’t have gotten this far without them.

OUR PARTNERS They launched us. Gratitude forever.

TOP SUSTAINABLE RESTAURANTS

It was our ambition to create a CCR list of the top 50 sustainable restaurants in the U.S. who were putting “climate change on the menu.” We have not yet built our own but we have discovered a pair of San Franciscan restauranteurs, Anthony Myint and Karen Leibowitz, who had a similar ambition and were deep into fulfilling it. Already in 2017, their non-profit organization, Zero Foodprint posted a list of restaurants who had committed to funding climate friendly farming practices (regenerative practices like paying for cover crop seeds, compost, tree-planting, fencing for grazing management, etc).

It was part of a new public-private initiative supporting carbon farming practices called Restore California which directly increase soil health and the supply of great ingredients.

To date, around 30 restaurants have achieved carbon-neutral status under the program; with dozens more on their way to earning the stamp. Those which have achieved in the U.S. are listed below.

GREENWASHING

Ensure your company isn’t damaging customers’ trust by greenwashing – making false claims that your company or products are environmentally friendly.

•  Greenwashing is when a company purports to be environmentally conscious for marketing purposes but actually isn’t making any notable sustainability efforts. •  Companies can greenwash even when they have good intentions. •  As a result of greenwashing, most American consumers do not believe company claims about their sustainability practices.

You’ve probably heard of whitewashing at least once in the corporate world. Whitewashing is when an organization covers up or glosses over scandalous information by presenting a biased representation of the facts. But greenwashing isn’t nearly as well known. Greenwashing is when an organization spends more time and money on marketing itself as environmentally friendly than on actually minimizing its environmental impact. It’s a deceitful marketing gimmick intended to mislead consumers who prefer to buy goods and services from environmentally conscious brands.
