Motion text

That this House recognises the importance of conserving the world's natural resources and of countering climate change; notes the urgent need to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases resulting from human activity; congratulates businesses that have begun to measure to reduce the carbon emissions resulting from their operations, supply chains, products and services; further notes the difficulties in defining the parameters for such measurement and in agreeing methodologies; believes that such measurements would enable both informed comparison and customer choice; emphasises the need for national and international consensus on such measurement and methodologies; and calls upon the Royal Society to take forward the process for establishing a mechanism for achieving such a consensus.
