UK top companies have no targets on Green House Gas Emissions

15/06/2011 / Kaj

Nearly half of the UK’s top companies do not have targets on greenhouse gas emissions, despite years of legislation and campaigning on the issue, a study by the Carbon Trust has found.

Forty of the FTSE 100 either lack numerical targets on carbon dioxide, or their targets are for previous years and have now expired, without being renewed. This contrasts strongly with the UK’s legislation on carbon dioxide, under which the government has set some of the world’s most stringent targets on emissions reductions stretching to the 2020s and beyond.
