AG outlines next steps for mandatory carbon reporting

18th October 2012

The Aldersgate Group has published its consultation response to the Department of Environment Food and Rural Affairs' inquiry into the guidance for companies listed on the London Stock Exchange to report their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This announcement was strongly welcomed by the business community and must pave the way to extend the requirements to all large companies in due course.

The document sets out critical next steps to introduce the regulations. This includes when the regulations should come into effect, what emissions should be disclosed, suggested methodology, interaction with other reporting schemes (such as the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme) and the review period.
