Legislation is needed to compel people to do things that they would not otherwise do. But legislation is not enough on its own. It needs good, like-minded practitioners to enforce it in spirit as well as in word.
The perversity that currently prevails sees CDM as an additional cost rather than an opportunity for improvement. The whole industry is strewn with similar examples, the worst of which is the adversarial nature of contracting. The great sadness to me is that the real solution lies several eons down the evolutionary road.
