Businesses 'Not Providing Bosses With Carbon Emissions Reports'

London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 15, 2009 -- It has been revealed that many businesses do not provide carbon emissions reports to their senior management. According to the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE), around 70 per cent of enterprises fail to do this. The organisation believes the problem has arisen because there is a lack of standardisation in the way carbon emissions are measured.This is because, despite the wealth of information which is made available to companies, it is confusing and often difficult to understand. Caroline Allen, regional director of Northern and East Central Europe and Russia for the ACTE, said: `We see airline and rail emissions are much easier to measure but clearly with ground transportation, it becomes a lot vaguer.`There are good practices to adopt but it is still very difficult to measure carbon emissions,` she added.The Fourth Annual ACTE #150; KDS Survey entitled The Business Travel Industry Under Siege: Crisis Power has recently revealed that for 76 per cent of firms, reducing energy waste within company buildings is the most popular way of being environmentally friendly.
