As reported yesterday IEMA responded to the Defra's evidence on GHG reporting, calling on government to quickly introduce mandatory reporting on greenhouse gas emissions for large companies.
Today (Wednesday 1st December), BBC News have reported upon the publication of Defra's report and have included findings from IEMA's own report on GHG Management and Reporting.
Martin Baxter, IEMA's Executive Director - Policy, is quoted in BBC's article urging government to act swiftly, or risk being left behind by other countries.
"Government needs to act now to introduce mandatory reporting to ensure that UK businesses gain the benefits from embedding sustainability into their corporate strategy."
Members can access the BBC article from here.
Influencing government and helping the media to understand issues relevant to the environmental profession is part of IEMA's dedication to placing the environment at the heart of change.
IEMA's work on the mandatory carbon reporting issue, and overarching activity on promoting the profession, have been picked up by several other media channels and agencies over the past two months. Links to some of the online articles are below.
