Managing for a Carbon-Concerned Future
A Decision-Making Framework
Business can expect an increasing demand for reductions in carbon emissions from both operations and products. This prospect drives the belief held by many that our future will be "carbon-concerned" — that regulatory and social pressures will mount exponentially in relation to the amount of CO2 and other greenhouse gases released into the environment. A vast amount of information and guidance is available on GHG measurement — increasingly referred to as defining an organization's carbon footprint — and management. This report addresses a subject on which much less has been written — the decision-making process for companies wishing to develop new carbon management approaches and opportunities.
