The article reveals that generators, together with oil and gas companies and metals and mining companies, account for 70 per cent of the carbon dioxide emissions reported to the Carbon Disclosure Project, an annual assessment of emissions from FT500-listed companies. Compared with the previous year, more respondents had become engaged in renewable energy, with 34 per cent of companies reporting buying some proportion of renewable generation. The number of companies with energy efficiency programmes had also climbed.
