Smartgrid.com comments about how a CNET article “bungles” predictions about carbon management systems:
Likewise, the story makes unlikely claims about carbon management, asserting it will soon be a common practice. In fact, it will be common when there is a price on carbon and not before. And a U.S. carbon policy will not come into effect until we are long past the recessions, elections and gas crises that currently preoccupy us (if ever).
According to CDP, 82% of the Global 500 responded to their survey about carbon emissions, and 73% disclose carbon emissions. To disclosure emissions, some form of “carbon management” is occurring, even if it’s just a basic spreadsheet-based recording system sent to business units with numbers audited by an accounting firm. (See the full report here). So, at least in large global companies with a very large collective carbon footprint, carbon management is now common.
