CICS, the sustainability assurance provider, has released a film about Mandatory Carbon Reporting.

After a Defra consultation on the subject, the Government announced that, from 2013, Mandatory Carbon Reporting (MCR) of GHG emissions will come into force for those companies that are listed on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange.

Shaun Bainbridge, Director at CICS, says:

“There seems to be some confusion as to what is involved in Mandatory Carbon Reporting.  We put together this film to explain the advantages of measuring emissions, how doing so can drive profits and the benefits of having data independently verified.”

The film can be viewed at
