(Washington, D.C. - July 24, 2008) EPA welcomes 51 new partners as Climate Leaders, breaking the 200 mark. In addition, eight companies took the next step in the partnership by announcing new greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions goals. Together, EPA's Climate Leaders represent more than ten percent of the U.S. Gross Domestic Product and have pledged to prevent estimated GHG emissions equivalent to nine million cars annually.

"EPA's Climate Leader partners are proving that businesses don't need to break the bank to do what's good for the environment," said EPA Administrator Stephen L. Johnson. "These leading companies are reducing their climate footprints in cost-effective ways."

Climate Leaders, launched in 2002, is a voluntary program that works with companies to measure greenhouse gas emissions and to set aggressive long-term emissions reduction goals. The partners represent a wide range of industries in all 50 states.

The eight companies that are announcing aggressive new greenhouse gas emissions reductions goals are: Baxter International Inc., Deerfield, Ill.; Burt's Bees Inc., Durham, N.C.; Campbell Soup Co., Camden, N.J.; Cherokee Investment Partners, Raleigh, N.C.; Cisco Systems Inc., San Jose, Calif.; Deere & Co., Moline, Ill.; Millipore Corp., Billerica, Mass.; and Petaluma Poultry, Petaluma, Calif.
