Half FTSE100 don’t have emissions targets

Good story from my Guardian colleague Fiona Harvey.

Forty of the FTSE 100 either lack numerical targets on carbon dioxide, or their targets are for previous years and have now expired, without being renewed. This contrasts strongly with the UK’s legislation on carbon dioxide, under which the government has set some of the world’s most stringent targets on emissions reductions stretching to the 2020s and beyond

I find this rather amazing. The perception in the carbon-cutting community is that everyone big has some kind of target, albeit something that’s not necessarily very ambitious. But that perception, evidently, is baloney.
