Amlin tops carbon intensity league table

Amlin tops carbon intensity league table
Insurer Amlin has come out top in a list of UK companies compiled based on their carbon intensity.

Non-profit research body the Environmental Investment Organisation (EIO) ranked the top 100 UK companies based on their carbon emissions and levels of transparency.

The insurer was named as number one with a carbon intensity rating of 1.21. It was followed by financial services company Aviva with a rating of 1.36.

BP and GlaxoSmithKline, both of which were said to have provided incomplete data, are the only firms with a market value of over $100 billion (£62 billion) that did not disclose their complete emissions.

The bottom 13 companies on the table, including the worst performer, mining firm Randgold, did not release information about emissions. These included the Carnival cruise company and financial firm Standard and Chartered.

Sam Gill, operational director of the EIO, said: "Given that each company listed in the ET UK 100 is one of the biggest in Britain, if not the world, keeping this information out of the public domain is no longer excusable."

The Carbon Trust announced recently that 500 firms had been awarded its Standard for cutting CO2 emissions, including British Land and Motorola.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800408114-ADNFCR
