CBI comments on UN Climate Summit
The CBI commented on the UN Climate Summit hosted by UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon, in New York.
Katja Hall, CBI Deputy Director-General, said:
“This summit is a critical stepping stone to securing a strong and meaningful climate deal in Paris next year.
“Business must be – and wants to be – part of the solution to tackling our climate change challenges. We need to recognise that green and growth can go hand in hand together, to secure the right deal, and provide the basis for business investment that will drive growth and jobs in a low-carbon economy.
“Global leaders need to demonstrate clear ambition and cooperation to establish the right frameworks that will secure a green economy for future generations.”
