Can we insist that companies give details of their environmental impact? It pays to be transparent – a nifty marketing tool as we the people become more discerning!

The World Debate asks whether companies, already forced to report on their finances, should also have to reveal details of their impact on the environment and society?

How transparent do we expect companies to be and can we trust them to come clean?

    not sure if they have archived the program – it might be on youtube
    unfortunately i don’t have the software to copy these wonderful programs and post them on youtube for all to see for ever!
    the BBC only keep things to view for a week i think or is that the audio
    podcasts? you can down/up? load them as mp3 files
    they have fabulous programs put together by the creme de la creme journalists have a brouse – search for podcasts on their site
    you can listen live too but that chomps massive amounts of band width

    all the best to you
