UK businesses meet carbon reporting deadline

Nearly 100 per cent of UK businesses have met the first reporting deadline for the Carbon Reduction Commitment, according to the Environment Agency.

Figures released by the UK’s Environment Agency show 4,295 of the 4,549 - 95 per cent  - businesses obligated to disclose information on their carbon footprint have done so by last month’s first reporting deadline, accounting for over 60 million tonnes of carbon emissions and 10 per cent of emissions by nation.

In a released statement, Tony Grayling, Head of Climate Change and Communities at the Environment Agency, said: “This is a new scheme for the UK, so we are pleased that the vast majority of organisations required to submit a report have done so by the deadline.”
