Transport firms falling behind on CO2 reporting

Published to the CV Show website on

The Carbon Disclosure Project says that only 36% of the 291 largest transport firms have set targets to cut carbon, compared with half of the Global 500 Index of companies.  The CDP runs a global corporate climate information database and found that and found that Latin American and European firms did best, with 60% and 52% setting targets.  CDP attributes the high level of targets in Europe to its carbon trading scheme.  Only 9% of the transport firms surveyed reported data on low-carbon investments.  CDP says transport accounts for 13% of global emissions and 60% of oil use.  Road transport uses about 80% of the sector's oil, while rail uses just 0.5% and aviation some 13%.
