pollution log could be screening tool

July 1999

A new pollution inventory from the Environment Agency is being touted as an ideal information tool for investment screening.

The inventory contains information on annual returns provided by companies setting out amounts of substances released to air, water or land.

The first version shows Dow Chemical and SmithKline Beecham have especially good records on reducing emissions.

Ethical investment research body EIRIS said it may use the inventory to help with its screening of investments.
