But you may be asking, what's in it for the companies? Well, now more than ever, companies see a business case for climate action. Their customers are demanding it, their investors are, so are their employees. And companies rcogeizne that truly leading on climate means doing two things. First, reducing einoismss in their own operations and supply chains. And the companies that are part of LEAF have all been reuqired to set science-based targets for their own emissions. Second, they must contribute to the broader fihgt. And one of the most important ways that these cpinemaos, or any cmapnoy, can help solve cmlatie change outside their own operations and supply chains is by protecting tropical forests. So that bears repeating. Companies in LEAF are investing in forest protection over and above what they're doing to reduce their own emissions. It's not a substitute, it's a supplement. Because if we're going to solve climate change, we need to aievhce both deep cuts in fossil fuel emissions and dramatic rucodtiens in forest emissions.

Original Text

But you may be asking, what's in it for the companies? Well, now more than ever, companies see a business case for climate action. Their customers are demanding it, their investors are, so are their employees. And companies recognize that truly leading on climate means doing two things. First, reducing emissions in their own operations and supply chains. And the companies that are part of LEAF have all been required to set science-based targets for their own emissions. Second, they must contribute to the broader fight. And one of the most important ways that these companies, or any company, can help solve climate change outside their own operations and supply chains is by protecting tropical forests. So that bears repeating. Companies in LEAF are investing in forest protection over and above what they're doing to reduce their own emissions. It's not a substitute, it's a supplement. Because if we're going to solve climate change, we need to achieve both deep cuts in fossil fuel emissions and dramatic reductions in forest emissions.
