UK Companies Must 'Budget' Their Carbon Emissions

Every UK business must carbon budget when the Climate Change Bill comes before parliament over the next year. And the IT industry will need to start helping businesses meet their carbon targets. The IT industry will need to change from power hungry to green hungry in a short period of time.
The Climate Change Bill has already been drafted by Whitehall and will create legislation that aims to reduce UK carbon dioxide emissions by 60 percent through domestic and international action by 2050.
This will be based on a system of carbon budgets--which is simply a limit on the total quantity of carbon dioxide emissions a company can churn out over a specified period of time.
