Corporate Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets (November 2001)
"This report...uses case studies of a variety of companies that have established climate-related targets for reducing their emissions and/or energy use to show how the adoption of such targets, along with concerted efforts to meet them, can help improve performance and bottom-line results. All of the profiled companies view their efforts to set and meet climate-related targets as a way to reduce production costs and enhance product sales today. The companies also report that, in working to achieve their targets, they are improving their prospects for success under future regulatory and market environments."
