From findings of a joint IBM – Carbon Disclosure Project study:
There are many diverse drivers behind initiatives to create a carbon data management system. The principal motivators discussed in the study are:
• Cost reduction
• Risk mitigation (e.g. be ahead of any legislation, avoid any negative press)
• Enhancing reputation
• End-user pressure
• Evaluating opportunities
• Doing the right thing.
So many questions, so little time.
