Kyoto Protocol - World Goverments Reach International Consensus on Greenhous Gas Reduction (PDF)
In December 1997, member countries of the United Nations reached agreement to reduce their total greenhouse gas emissions under the Kyoto Protocol. By 2005, all member countries will have to report on their progress. Such international action reflects the immediate need to tackle the issue of greenhouse gas emissions and their impact on climate change. As the world looks to the new millennium, government agencies are starting to implement guidelines and procedures for business to measure, reduce and report on their greenhouse gas emissions.
