Climate change is racing up the corporate agenda
Edited on Sat May-15-04 03:32 PM by WEagle
CORPORATES warm to climate change
Guardian - UK

Climate change is racing up the corporate agenda and has even touched ExxonMobil,
according to an institutional investors' survey due out next week.

Almost three times as many firms responded to this year's annual survey from the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), a group of institutional investors holding assets worth $10,000bn (5,700bn), the same as the US gross domestic product.

British oil groups BP and BG along with banks Abbey National and HSBC were deemed among the best in their class on the basis of the responses.

Compass Group, the caterer, was among the British firms that failed to respond, but so too did aircraft manufacturer Boeing. Exxon - historically antagonistic to the Kyoto treaty and other climate change initiatives - ignored survey questions sent to the top 500 global companies.

1. I bet it's racing up the corporate agenda -- it's something else
they can charge us for, all the while claiming they are doing us a big favor.
