Why Company League?

The Climate Competition Company League is designed for companies to challenge their network peers to create a cross-company championship. Companies love to be challenged as it helps them communicate their sustainable efforts to their commercial partners as well as strengthens their partner relationships.

This solution provides for companies to strengthen their network of suppliers and collaborate with partner companies using the sustainability topic as a base. Companies compete in teams with the goal engaging their employees to reduce their personal their CO2 footprint. The company with the least individual CO2 footprint at the end of the competition wins. The winner is announced to all the participants.

Case Studies

Sustainable Kildare

Sustainable Kildare was a year long climate action programme for businesses led by County Kildare Chamber and sponsored by Intel. Running from October 2021 to March 2022, the programme engages businesses in a series of fun and friendly climate action challenges, all supported by an education programme.

The championship consists of a series of three Climate Challenges, delivered via the Climate Competition platform, provide a fun way to engage people in climate action while building awareness and starting crucial conversations about climate issues.


Three challenges from October 2021 and March 2022 saw:

  • 56,106 KG CO2e saved
  • 41,716 climate actions logged
  • 66 teams participated
  • 36 unique SMEs engaged
  • 85% participation rate
  • Strong daily engagement

What did the participants say?

At County Kildare Chamber, we take great pride in our “Sustainable Kildare” programme, which was supported by Intel Ireland and ran in partnership with Global Action Plan.

Sustainable Kildare succeeded in mobilising staff in 65 different businesses, who took over 41,000 actions to reduce their impact on the climate. Our climate challenge not only resulted in big savings in CO2 emissions, but also saw unprecedented levels of employee engagement with possible solutions to the climate crisis. We found the competition to be fun, effective, and educational: County Kildare now has hundreds of new climate ambassadors, showing the power of individual action and collective behaviour change.
