Mandatory Carbon Reporting announcement

Posted by Tom Delay | 20 June 2012 | News

Response to Defra's announcement of mandatory greenhouse gas emissions reporting for businesses listed on the London Stock Exchange

30 St Mary Axe and City of London
Today's announcement is welcome news. Mandatory carbon reporting for companies listed on the London Stock Exchange from April 2013 will encourage even more businesses to reap the benefits of accurately understanding their carbon emissions. Measurement helps businesses to gain insight to help them take the right strategic decisions to ensure long term success. The Carbon Trust's ten-year experience footprinting the carbon emissions of companies shows that reporting, far from being a burden, can help deliver significant cost saving and enhance corporate reputation and new revenue opportunities. Over the last decade the Carbon Trust has worked with 75% of the FTSE 100 and carbon-footprinted hundreds of companies globally to help identify risks and opportunities. This work has resulted in 38 million tonnes less carbon emission and £3.7bn costs saving for the companies we have worked with.
