Abstract: 
How are, under the present uncertainties, Austria's large emitters defining and implementing their CO2/Climate Change strategies was the question that raised my interest. Based on the methodology that 'Carbon Disclosure Project' developed over the past 9 years an adapted questionnaire was designed. It served as guideline for the extensive interviews with leading top managers in Austria's large emitters. The responses have been evaluated and anonymised. The companies have a well defined CO2 / Climate Change Strategy and are active in its implementation. Scope 1 GHG are well monitored and effective and efficient reduction measures being implemented, for Scope 2 as well as for Scope 3 GHG the corporations will be challenged to effectively start monitoring and reducing them. Little interest is found for VER's (Voluntary Emissions Reductions). Intensifying the dialogue and the search for a consensus with stakeholders on the further pathway to a low carbon economy is essential if we are going to get an agreement at COP15 / Copenhagen.
