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
