Changing environmental norms, coupled with new commercial risks and social expectations, increasingly challenge corporations to show even greater commitment to sustainability. Successful enterprises must now not simply be seen to be green, but be keen to be green. Businesses are shifting focus from merely complying with environmental regulations to anticipating and managing risk. Consumers and retailers now demand environmentally preferable products and services. Many of our clients’ customers now want eco-labelled products with low carbon footprints and proof of sustainability through the supply chain.
Companies and their boards, investors and insurers are increasingly concerned about climate change impacts and risks to business sustainability. Under the Federal government’s National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGERs), a large number of Australian businesses will have to monitor and report their greenhouse gas emissions and energy use. Significant civil and criminal penalties, in excess of $220,000, can apply for failure to comply with the Act. The Federal government’s emerging carbon emissions trading scheme is motivating companies to assess their capacity to adapt to a new carbon-constrained economy. Companies need to assure stakeholders of their ability to effectively manage opportunities and risks associated with their carbon emissions and ensure business continuity.
