Businesses 'should audit their carbon emissions'

Businesses 'should audit their carbon emissions'
Businesses looking to reduce their carbon footprint must first carry out an audit on their existing emissions to identify areas for improvement, according to the Centre for Alternative Technology.

A spokesperson for the organisation, which was founded with the aim of discovering more sustainable technologies, said that firms must develop a clear understanding of their emissions, which will allow them to review their options for carbon reduction.

According to the centre, the government is not yet doing enough to incentivise the adoption of low carbon technologies or cut emissions. It claimed that a "carrot and stick" approach is needed.

"As well as the incentives for investing in renewables and investing in energy efficiency, there does also need to be an element of legislation which makes it more expensive to stay in high emitting technologies," the spokesperson explained.

In an interview with the BBC's AM Show on Sunday last weekend, Chris Huhne, secretary of state for energy and climate change, said it will be "up to the market to decide" which low carbon technologies replace fossil fuels.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800013177-ADNFCR
