Businesses 'need carbon emission reports for managers'

Businesses looking to reduce their carbon emissions and become greener should provide carbon emission reports to senior management, it has been claimed.

The Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) claims that there is a lack of standardisation when it comes to measuring the amount of carbon produced by a firm.

Furthermore, although there is a lot of information available, it can be confusing and difficult for businesses to understand, the organisation furthers.

Caroline Allen, regional director of Northern and East Central Europe and Russia for the ACTE, said: "We see airline and rail emissions are much easier to measure but clearly with ground transportation, it becomes a lot vaguer."

She added: "There are good practices to adopt but it is still very difficult to measure carbon emissions."

Research by Kyocera Mita has revealed that 60 per cent of firms think current concerns about the economic downturn will encourage enterprises to be more environmentally conscious.
