Leading by example
We believe in aiming high. Winning engagement at the highest level is critical to achieving internationally agreed targets on climate change.
As a founding member of the Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders’ Group (CLG) for Climate Change, we were at the launch of the CLG’s Copenhagen Communique in July 2009. This sets out the business case for an ambitious, robust and effective UN framework on climate change. We have been signatories to all The Communiqués, including the most recent, the Trillion Tonne Communiqué. This is a global call from business for a policy response to the explicit scientific warnings of the risks posed by the continuing rise in atmospheric greenhouse gases.
Our Managing Director, Peter Simpson, and other business leaders from major UK, EU and international companies in the CLG share a commitment to develop new and longer-term policies for tackling climate change.
