The article reports on the recommendation by the U.S. Business Roundtable, a multi-industry group, that companies take action and report greenhouse gas emissions, but stopped short of endorsing a cap-and-trade program. The group says its members differ on which policy tools would be most effective in curbing climate change, but that it is necessary to develop a general climate change policy because legislation and regulations are under consideration.
