ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the 2009 Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) survey which found that most of the largest companies in Great Britain have failed to set a carbon reduction target. Statistics are provided on the response rate, percentage of emissions, and the number of companies that publish their emissions figures. The current survey piloted a method of assessing performance rather than just disclosure in response to calls by institutional investors to improve the usefulness of its data.
