Our History

The Prince of Wales's Corporate Leaders Group (CLG) was established in 2005 following on from a speech by then UK Prime Minister Tony Blair calling for a stronger leadership voice from business on climate change.¹ Convened by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) on behalf of The Prince of Wales, CLG's members are leaders from cross-cutting sectors including infrastructure, manufacturing, consumer goods and services, finance and energy production. Following its inception in 2005, the CLG quickly expanded to cover EU action, where the group's main focus now lies and also to support international action.

The timeline below shows some of the key milestones achieved by the CLG over the years.
