Climate Leaders & Laggards

For those of you who care about such things, Greenpeace have published a list of those companies who are helping promote green emissions targets in the EU (and to help create new jobs and boost investment), and those companies who are doing their best to scupper efforts to lower emissions.

You can read a little more here:

A report from March 2011, commissioned by the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety and conducted by researchers from across Europe found that a 30 percent climate target can increase our chances of preventing dangerous climate change, trigger investment in Europe’s green economy and increase European gross domestic product by €620 billion by 2020.

It’s not as radical as storming an oil rig aboard the Rainbow Warrior, but targeting policy makers and business leaders is still necessary, dirty work.
