3 out of 4 large companies measuring their carbon footprint

Ninety-five percent of companies surveyed by the U.S. Conference Board see discernable opportunities -- and risks -- of emerging carbon constraints, which are most likely to manifest themselves in "cap and trade" markets. Three out of four companies are actively measuring their carbon footprints from both direct and indirect operations.

Nearly 30 percent of the 92 companies surveyed said their are figuring the costs of carbon emissions in their planning of future projects and another 39 percent are weighing how to include such costs in the future.

The survey also showed that about half of the companies contacted report their emissions publicly. Of those who don't 60 percent said they plan to.
