The article focuses on the response of companies on the government's carbon dioxide emission reduction scheme in Great Britain. It cites the implementation of the Climate Change Act in 2008, which sets out 80 percent target cut of carbon emission by 2050, and an intermediate target decrease between 26 and 34 percent by 2020. However, several experts argue that the target was overly ambitious, nevertheless, companies have continued to do their part in tackling their carbon emission.
