31 March 2014 – Members of The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Groups are calling for urgent action from governments in response to a new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability, which represents the latest scientific evidence.

 

Eliot Whittington, Deputy Director of The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group said:

“The many negative impacts predicted by this authoritative report should make us all sit up and take notice. Climate change is not something that will happen in the future: it is happening now and without urgent action, things will only get worse. Enlightened businesses know this and want support from their governments to prepare for the inevitable impacts of climate change, and to help minimise future disruption and damage. We must act collectively and urgently in the face of this incontrovertible threat.”
