This article reports the ACCA has marked the 10th anniversary of its environmental reporting awards in Great Britain, sponsored by Great Britain-based KPMG. Shell International and the Cooperative Bank were joint winners of the year 2000 award. From the SME sector, screen press printers Bovince and environmental consultants Wastebusters won best small business environmental report. Construction company Carillion PLC won the best first-time report. However, a harsh comment came from the editor of the periodical "The Economist," who said that there is no evidence that what companies do for the environment has an impact on their share price. Frances Cairncross, another editor said that companies shouldn't worry about the environment simply in order to dodge attack from environmentalist.
