Transforming the UK economy for a low-carbon future
The Chartered Management Institute in conjunction with the IET has published a persuasive new report which suggests that while the importance of the green agenda is increasingly well-recognised, too few organisations are taking the urgent action needed to transform the UK economy for a low-carbon future.
The report identifies a failure of boardroom leadership as a significant block to reform. In conclusion, it calls for managers to do more to cut emissions by making green issues part of the mainstream of management activities.
To download the full report please go to the CMI website - http://www.managers.org.uk/gogreen.
The report offers real insights into good practice that managers can learn from and it makes practical recommendations to help managers reduce their carbon footprint. Further information can be obtained from the CMI website - http://www.managers.org.uk/gogreen.
A total of 1,500 responses were received from across the UK, drawn from industry sectors across the economy and from managers at a range of levels of seniority up to directors and chief executives.
The research has been led by the Chartered Management Institute in partnership with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the UK Business Council for Sustainable Energy, supported by EDF Energy and the Association of Chief Police Officers, Cymru. The Centre for Environmental Strategy at the University of Surrey was the research partner.
