DEFRA – Measuring and reporting of GHG emissions by UK companies
ACE have submitted a written reponse to the Department for Environment and Rural Affairs consultation: “Measuring and reporting of GHG emissions by UK companies”.
ACE warmly welcomes the prospect of ending the policy of continuing to make carbon reporting an entirely voluntary exercise. We endorse the proposition set out in the consultation document that would require all larger public and private firms – as defined by the Companies Act 2006 – to report publicly upon their annual greenhouse gas emissions. We believe that Government should reserve the right to introduce random spot-checks to ensure compliance. Under the Climate Change Act 2008, the Government is required to make mandatory requirements for carbon reporting, and we cannot see any credible why this should be changed.
