New York — Thomson Reuters today released its latest Global 500 Greenhouse Gas Performance 2010-2015: 2016 Report on Trends – revealing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data from many of the world’s 500 largest businesses (Global 500).
These businesses currently represent roughly 28% of the world’s GDP and collectively emitted 10% of the world’s greenhouse-gas emissions over the last five years. Key findings in this report indicate a decoupling between economic performance and emissions output in some firms. Revenues for the Global 500 grew roughly 5% over a four-year period, while emissions increased by 1%. Many of the largest emitters have yet to achieve decoupling of emissions with growth, however.
