The report is also launched during an event where key stakeholders are invited to. This year the event was a carbon neutral event where awareness was raised that each and everybody can play a role in reducing their carbon footprint. An independent guest speaker is asked to comment on the report. The speeches are available as podcast on the following website: http://www.corpcam.com/showstream.aspx?presid=1748#
