Our client IEMA (Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment) released some key research findings this week regarding the issue of whether companies should have to report on their greenhouse gas emissions. The IEMA study found that 80% of environmental professionals working in UK businesses say that mandatory reporting is needed if business is to play its part in the green economy.

IEMA launched the new research on Monday 4th October calling on government to introduce mandatory reporting on greenhouse gas emissions.

“The majority of companies in the UK are not taking action to lower their carbon footprint and reduce their GHG emissions. These companies are missing an opportunity to cut their GHG emissions and reduce their costs. Over 80% of those we surveyed say that mandatory reporting of GHG emissions should be introduced for companies,” said Martin Baxter, IEMA’s Executive Director of Policy upon the launch.

This research – IEMA’s Special Report – GHG Management and Reporting – is derived from a comprehensive survey of 1,674 IEMA members during April of this year. Further in-depth research was conducted through a series of workshops attended by 200 practitioners to further discuss and examine key issues.

Look out for a feature on the report and its findings on page 14 of Issue 105 of ‘the environmentalist’ which is also published this week.
