The Global 800 Carbon Ranking 2011 0

A new environmental tracking (ET) report from the Environmental Investment Organisation (EIO), provides detailed rankings of the carbon emissions of companies around the world. The report ranked the world’s largest 1,300 companies according to their greenhouse gas emissions and transparency.

The purpose of the ET Carbon Ranking is to provide information on a company’s greenhouse gas emissions intensity as well as its level of disclosure and verification. The aim of the ET Carbon Ranking is to encourage increasingly higher levels of disclosure and verification while incentivising corporate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction on a global scale.

From 2011 the ranking will be based on a greenhouse gas emissions intensity metric relative to a company’s size, with companies ranked regardless of industry or sector.

Here is a list of the top 20 firms from around the world and the countries in which they are based:

1 BASF DE
2 ANGLO AMERICAN GB

4 ALCATEL-LUCENT FR
5 SANTANDER BR BR
