Today our business reporter, Stephan Smith will be attending the Corporate Climate Response conference here in London. It is run by Ogilvy PR who invited The Coffee House to attend.
Stephan’s day at the conference will cover Personal Carbon Accounting or carbon offsets . He will report back to us in due course to give us all the chance to debate the merits of carbon offsets and big business’s enthusiasm for them.
Most of you will know that The Coffee House hasn’t come out in favour of carbon offsetting and carbon trading. We prefer direct emissions reductions. Still, our site is about debate and therefore Stephan has been sacrificed to the dragons den.
One past conference attendee exclaimed; “It was especially interesting to hear some of the world’s largest companies suggest that the time to act is now, for both moral and brand risk reasons, and that there’s profit to be made as well” CapitalBridge
