Submitted by: Amanda Botes, Wednesday, December 7, 2011
The eagerly awaited Carbon Disclosure South Africa JSE 100 Report was launched on the 6th of December 2011 at the Durban Country Club. The top companies that were acknowledged for their efforts in disclosure were Exxaro, Nedbank and Goldfields, and in the performance category were Goldfields and British American Tabacco.
The Carbon Disclosure Project is a voluntary initiative where companies are requested to disclose information on their carbon emissions and targets that they wish to set.
The report provides scope 1 and 2 emission data from 83 of the top 100 JSE companies in South Africa. This is an improvement from the 2010 report where 74 companies disclosed their emissions.
