ABSTRACT
The article reports on the British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs' (DEFRA) view that companies benefit from the voluntary reporting of greenhouse gas emissions. According to a DEFRA report to Parliament, firms which voluntary disclose their emissions have lower energy costs and have better shareholder relationships. The DEFRA report also concludes that voluntary disclosure is a significant step towards improving carbon management and stimulating behavioral change.e
