UK Carbon Reporting Survey — Lip service or leadership?
This UK Carbon Reporting Survey highlights that, whilst there has been an improvement since last year, many quoted companies still have much work to do before they can confidently claim compliance with the new regulations. Significant issues around consistency, transparency, accuracy and completeness of disclosures were evident in the 2011/12 reports reviewed. It is also clear that, generally, there is slow progress in making substantial cuts to emissions, which is the overall purpose of the UK government's legislative agenda for low carbon. Companies now have little time to display the kind of leadership sought by both national and international governments in this area.
