It is useful for attracting some types of clients but my view is that it is too limiting. In fact, the whole low carbon debate has serious limitations as it has not, to date, managed to get the general public to understand that there is a fundamental imbalance in the way we account for our business activities. The damage that carbon emissions is "costing" simply is not reflected in its price. The "who pays" debate should really have sprung to life following the grounding of Europe's air fleet with the volcanic dust. The airlines have an enshrined right to tax free fuel but no-one seems to want to question why they should be so privileged.
