Article Type: News from the net From: Management of Environmental Quality: An International Journal, Volume 19, Issue 4

The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has published a new report entitled “Climate change: everyone’s business”. The report calls for a much greater sense of urgency is required if the UK is to meet its targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and argues that a failure to act will mean that the UK will also miss out on the commercial opportunities that will emerge on the pathway to a low-carbon economy.

The report has been produced by the CBI’s Climate Change Task Force, which is made up of business leaders from key sectors of the UK economy, and is informed by a major study commissioned from McKinsey. It concludes that substantial changes will be needed in the way the economy works if the UK is to meet its goals and that, while many of the technologies and solutions required already exist, the pace and scale of implementation of these must now be accelerated.
