Here is a summary of companies leading efforts to manage their carbon emissions and communicate this effectively as well as a list of companies who support carbon reduction standards.
Carbon Clear has published its fifth annual report ranking carbon measurement and reporting efforts of FTSE 100 companies. Carbon Clear ranks companies on their carbon measurement and reporting, strategy and targets, emissions reduction and how carbon reporting is used to engage stakeholders.
BT Group leads the list for its exemplary efforts at carbon measuring and reporting and its science based approach to greenhouse gas reduction targets. They narrowly bested Marks & Spencer who came in second. In 2014 the two companies tied for first place. Both companies lead the field by a considerable margin of almost 10 percentage points and they are both working on going beyond their ambitious carbon reduction targets.
Rounding out the top 10 are: Sky, Kingfisher, Unilever, Aviva, Centrica, Coca-Cola, TUI AG and RELX Group. Kingfisher and Unilever shared joint fourth position and Aviva and Centrica shared joint sixth position.
However, the report concludes there are still a large number of companies who are doing far too little to manage their impacts on climate change.
In addition to reducing emissions companies are also supporting government efforts to reign in carbon pollution. Here is a list of companies that support carbon reduction pollution standards.
