The 3% Solution: Driving Profits Through Carbon Reduction ~ Groundbreaking research reveals practical tips for US companies to save US $780 billion in one decade

New analysis by WWF and CDP shows that companies can increase profits by cutting their carbon emissions, simultaneously helping to fight the threat of climate change. The 3% solution: driving profits through carbon reduction provides evidence to show that if US businesses act now to reduce emissions by an average of 3% annually, they can save up to US$190 billion in 2020 alone, or US$780 billion over 10 years. In doing so, companies can also help to prevent a global temperature increase of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The report findings also reveal that four out of five companies from the S&P500 that report their emissions to CDP see bigger financial returns on their carbon reduction investments than on their overall capital investments. Therefore, businesses who reallocate their capital expenditure can expect a tangible return, making this a profitable business opportunity.(Click the link for the study/how-to ) .
