Making the low-carbon business case

Published:  08 June, 2009

The Carbon Trust has developed a guide to help facilities managers, works engineers and environmental managers make an effective business case for investing in low-carbon projects. It is based on research among senior executives, who have provided valuable insight into what decision makers are looking for when considering whether to invest in a project.

The guide highlights common mistakes when presenting a business case, including using unexplained jargon or ambiguous terms, failing to identify and deal with risk factors, not using the appropriate financial appraisal methods and not giving a single clear recommendation.
