October 10, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

EDF logoThe Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) Climate Corps says its 117 fellows who worked to improve energy management at 102 organizations this summer uncovered $130 million in potential energy savings.

In China, fellows worked with Apple, Walmart,  McDonald’s, Cummins and Legrand to identify energy efficiency opportunities in the companies’ facilities.

In the US, EDF Climate Corps fellows branched out to look for energy savings within distribution and franchise networks. For example, Dunkin’ Brands brought on two fellows to help reduce carbon emissions associated with its franchisee-owned baking facilities and franchise restaurants.
