Global 500 improves carbon management and disclosure

For the first time in the ten year history of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) survey, the majority of respondents in the Global 500 report have climate change actions embedded as part of their business strategy. The report, launched 14 September also shows the highest ever carbon disclosure scores, 'demonstrating that the quality and completeness of carbon disclosure continues to improve across all sectors'. Nearly 80% of the Global 500 responded to the 2011 survey.
