British Guidelines for Drafting Environmental Reports

In 2001, British government drew up a set of guidelines for environmental reports available, together with key performance indicators called Integrated Pollution Control (IPC) to help companies grasp the environmental risks and consequences of their activities.

They are sent to FTSE companies and members of the Confederation of British Industry.
