Early adopters of Carbon Trust Standard recertified

Early adopters of Carbon Trust Standard recertified
Early adopters of the Carbon Trust Standard have now been recertified after successfully cutting their CO2 emissions.

Diageo, BskyB, Royal Mail and O2 are among those which have had their certificates issued after achieving average savings of 9,000 tonnes CO2e.

The latest CO2 reductions come on top of those which were achieved before they gained the Carbon Trust Standard and have on average saved the organisations over £400,000.

BskyB was the first organisation to be awarded the standard in April 2009 and now over 600 businesses have been certified.

Harry Morrison, general manager of the Carbon Trust Standard, said: "At the time of the first certification, organisations can exploit many quick and low cost wins to improve efficiency.

"Over time the opportunities to cut carbon become more challenging, but also more rewarding."

He also called for mandatory carbon reporting for all quoted companies, saying it would "quickly and simply" lead to more organisations reporting their emissions.

The Confederation of British Industry also recently announced it backs mandatory carbon reporting, providing steps are taken to align the obligation with existing regulations and cut duplication. ADNFCR-1235-ID-800622840-ADNFCR
