Arming You in the Greenhouse Gas Debate
The greenhouse gas emission debate is far from settled. But one thing is clear: International opinions, investor expectations and the general public opinion point to the need for action.
With greenhouse gas emission regulatory requirements on the horizon, you need to be prepared.
Burns & McDonnell can help you develop corporate policies, quantify emissions and plan strategically.
GHG Emissions Experience to Move You Ahead
As a practical matter, the debate over how much of the earth's temperature rise is due to manmade activities is now moot. The international community, U.S. corporations, the socially responsible investing community, state and regional regulatory agencies, and the general public opinion is for corporations to take steps now to manage greenhouse gas emissions with a longer term goal of reducing emissions.
Leading-edge companies are increasingly promoting emission reduction programs and want the federal government to take action so that targets are established and the playing field is level.
But until those steps are taken, you need a plan that provides for cost-effective, practical implementations that will position you to meet future expectations and regulations.
