British Industry Demands Climate Change Action
Alex Steffen, 27 May 05

A group of British business leaders has called on the Prime Minister to take real, long-term action on climate change:

The heads of the 12 leading firms say climate change is a huge challenge that needs serious investment by business. But they say they cannot invest because they are not sure what future government policies on climate will be.

The letter is signed off by the heads of BP, Shell, HSBC Bank, BAA, John Lewis, Scottish Power and more. Between them the firms ... have a turnover of £452bn.

They say bold policy action could actually boost Britain's profits by making the UK a world leader in low carbon technology.

(thanks, Daniel!)
