Hilary Benn: AG has helped lead corporate sector reporting

26th January 2010

The Aldersgate Group's work on mandatory carbon reporting was publicly acknowledged at a recent hearing of the Environmental Audit Committee (26th January 2010) by Hilary Benn MP, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. He noted that, "one of the things that’s been quite striking in the UK has been the movement within the corporate sector to report – I’m thinking of the Aldersgate Group."

On 8th January 2010 the Group sent a letter to Lord Mandelson which was copied to Mr Benn, calling for mandatory reporting for all large UK organisations, in order to secure greater accountability and transparency.
