The mission of The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group (CLG) in the UK is to maintain and improve political support for the transition to a low carbon, low climate risk UK economy, and for UK international leadership on climate change.
Furthermore, it aims to improve corporate awareness and political support for the incorporate of adaptation and climate risk into business models and policy. In addition to ongoing efforts to support existing leadership interventions by the UK, such as the recent work on the Fourth Carbon Budget, the primary focus over the upcoming year will be the finalisation and release of a new leadership manifesto, seeking to position climate and sustainability issues, including adaptation, more firmly in mainstream economic debates. This manifesto is drawing on a process to harness CLG member insight together with Cambridge academic expertise. It will set out a series of goals including power, energy efficiency, transport and sustainable business models, and identify priority actions in support of these goals.
