What are Europe's leading companies doing to reduce their environmental impact?
Carbon Clear’s seventh annual sustainable reporting research is based solely upon publicly available information that’s readily accessible to any interested third party. We believe that for companies to be transparent about managing their carbon emissions and efforts to reduce the effects of climate change, it is important members of the general public have access to the right information and it is provided in a way that they can understand.
Consumer preference and market factors such as the cost of renewable energy are important drivers in the UK. In Spain, competitor benchmarking and reporting frameworks such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) are advancing the environmental agenda. Legislation in France pressurises CAC 40 companies to report on how they integrate ESG-climate risks and issues into their decision-making.
As a result of our 2017 Sustainability Reporting Performance Research we are asking companies to join our Movement for Momentum and support the following objectives: Understand what the risk of climate change means for their business operations; increase the scale and ambition of carbon and energy reductions; align sustainability metrics with business strategy and; influence and encourage customers, employees and suppliers with clear and ambitious objectives.
