GE to Staples Called Climate Champions by Wildlife Group

General Electric Co. and Staples Inc. are among companies cited by an environment group for acting to cut emissions tied to global warming after Congress failed to pass climate-change legislation.

The World Wildlife Fund issued a report today, written in part by McKinsey & Co., that named GE and Staples as companies that improved by financial performance by tackling climate change. Investing in low-carbon energy sources, curbs on energy use and installation of modern heating or cooling technologies can help both the Earth and corporate balance sheets, according to the report.
