Many businesses are 'living in two realities' when it comes to matters of sustainability, according to new analysis from The Carbon Trust. In its report 'Titans or Titanics? Understanding the business response to climate change and resource scarcity', the Trust says: "They recognise and accept the risks and opportunities of an environmentally sustainable future, but continue to focus on the short-term."

The Trust's Chief Executive, Tom Delay, said: "Businesses are both a problem and the solution. They bring together the productive, technical and financial capabilities to lead the global transition to a sustainable, low carbon future. But it is crucial that boards properly assess and quantify the long-term risks and value-creation opportunities from climate change and resource scarcity, steering a safe course in dangerous waters."

Whether in sustainability terms you're a 'Titan' or a 'Titanic', you'll find more information on this topic here.
