Green Business Awards 2010: Carbon emissions performance

Winner - BT

Back in 1992, Britain was grappling with the ERM, the first George Bush was in the White House and while the Rio Summit put climate change on the map, it would be five years before countries signed up to mandatory emissions limits at Kyoto.

That same year, BT became one of the first companies in the world to set a carbon reduction target, following it up with a fully fledged carbon reduction programme in 1997.

Since then, the telecoms giant has reduced its carbon intensity by a remarkable 54% and has set the target that by 2020 the carbon intensity of its business will be 80% lower than in 1997.
