UK - The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), in collaboration with IT giant IBM, has launched a best practice guide for company managers following a lengthy consultation with industry.
The resulting best practice guide was developed to give advice on how companies could develop a climate change strategy.
Paul Dickinson, chief executive, CDP, said: "The guidelines are designed to support corporate executives in the implementation of climate change strategies and ensure that best practice data is readily available to carbon managers, experts and novices alike."
It found companies needed to have a properly formulated carbon strategy, including clear goals and targets.
Although there was a lack of homogeneity between industries, the CDP said standardised methods and reporting processes would make comparing different sectors easier.
It also said carbon reduction strategies should be developed alongside growth strategies to allow businesses to grow and cut emissions simultaneously.
Gill Hall, head of carbon management, IBM, commented: "The findings from the research are fascinating and highlight the complexities of managing carbon data.
"It is clear that carbon management is becoming more and more important to businesses and we hope that the guide will help continue the education of companies towards best practice for corporate carbon management."
