Top companies fail to disclose emission figures

The Guardian Green List has revealed that 48 firms classed in the FTSE 100 have published information on how they intend to reduce carbon emissions.

Other figures contained within the report show that while 18 firms have revealed information on their carbon footprints to the Carbon Disclosure Project, they stipulated that the data should not be made public.

A total of 68 firms have provided the information to the group of institutional investors without imposing this restriction, the paper reports.

The Guardian has also revealed which companies produce the largest levels of pollution.

ExonMobil produced the highest emissions and was responsible for 146 million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year - which was found to be the equivalent level of CO2 production as the United Arab Emirates generates.

In addition, Royal Dutch Shell was found to produce the same level of CO2 as Vietnam, with the energy company generating 98 million tonnes of carbon dioxide.
