Christian Carbon Reduction Campaign in the UK

The UK publication Christian Today is reporting that the UK organization Christian Aid is spearheading a campaign to urge corporations to commit to carbon emission reductions.
Noting that climate change is the most pressing issue for millions of the world’s poorest people, Christian Aid called on individuals and churches across the UK to sign up to its new ‘Climate Changed’ campaign and send postcards to the three companies demanding they publish the true extent of their carbon emissions, and commit to a 5 per cent annual reduction.
As part of the campaign, Christian Aid will be calling on the Chancellor of the Exchequer to implement mandatory reporting standards across UK business. The campaign follows an extensive new report the charity published, which reveals that almost 200 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions are not being reported by top companies on the London Stock Exchange.
