Sony has announced that the company has achieved and/or exceeded the majority of targets set out in its “Green Management 2010” mid-term environment plan. The highlights include a 30 percent reduction in global CO2 emissions across its business sites, compared with fiscal year 2000 year levels. Sony’s GM2010 plan, introduced in 2006, aimed to reduce the company’s environmental impact over the five-year period 2006-2010, and was certified by third-party verification.

 
The Financial Services Authority has issued an alert to British investors about carbon credit trading scams. Noting a growing market that promises substantial returns, the City watchdog agency warns retail investors about bogus firms promoting such claims as schemes. The warning follows a surge in investors’ complaints to the FSA about aggressive sales practices by brokers claiming to be selling carbon credits.
