BT tops carbon reporting league for second year
BT Group (BT) has narrowly beaten Marks & Spencer Group plc (M&S) in the latest analysis of the Carbon Reporting Performance of the FTSE 100. Last year both companies shared first place.
The fifth annual report by Carbon Clear ranks each FTSE 100 company on: its carbon measurement and reporting; strategy and targets; emissions reduction; and, how carbon reporting is used to engage stakeholders.
The Top 10 performers in this year’s report are: BT Group, Marks & Spencer Group plc, Sky, Kingfisher, Unilever, Aviva, Centrica, Coca-Cola HBC, TUI AG and RELX Group.
Mark Chadwick, chief executive of Carbon Clear, commented: “It’s encouraging to see some companies making good progress in their efforts to tackle climate change. These are the real ‘game changers’ who go above and beyond in terms of carbon management. However, what is clear from our report is that much more needs to be done and sooner rather than later.
“The UK’s FTSE 100 companies possess considerable resources in terms of financial strength, operations and employees, putting them in a powerful position to influence how others respond to climate change issues. Today’s report shows those businesses that are ‘walking the talk’, while highlighting other companies which barely go beyond minimum legal reporting requirements.”
