PwC/CPD 2013: Path to low carbon business "likely to be littered with awkward compromises and trade offs" on growth, environment and communities

The report, co-written by PwC and CDP, provides the most comprehensive analysis of corporate progress on climate change. The results underline the concerns of a lack of progress on breaking the link between rising emissions and economic growth. Key findings include

  • Total Scope 1 & 2 emissions have fallen, but the largest 50 emitters, which account for 73% of 2013’s total, have increased again
  • The 50 largest emitters have increased their emissions since 2009, as a slow economic recovery has gathered pace
  • Current reporting of indirect emissions in company supply chains is incomplete and does not reveal the full impact of company operations
  • 80% of responding companies are providing financial incentives for employees, particularly at board level to drive emissions reductions

Estimation des médailles décernées aux JO de Londres, en fonction de critères macro-économiques
Selon cette étude de PwC qui repose sur des critères macroéconomiques - plutôt que des prévisions précises - les sportifs anglais devraient bénéficier de l’effet « pays organisateur » (54 médailles).  Les États-Unis et la Chine devraient de nouveau caracoler en tête de ce classement des médailles.
Nous sommes à quelques semaines des Jeux Olympiques de Londres ; et pour la quatrième fois, l'économiste en chef de PwC UK, M. John Hawksworth, a produit une analyse des performances des pays participants, basée sur la participation de ceux-ci dans les Jeux Olympiques passés, leur économie et leur approche du sport.
