21 October 2014 – Members of The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group (CLG) are urging EU ministers to agree an ambitious package on climate change at the European Council meetings this week.

The group supports a target of at least a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in Europe, and 50% if other countries take comparable action. It also supports targets of at least 30% for renewables deployment and at least 30% for energy savings. The CLG is proud to deliver such an progressive position and note that it is the strongest stance taken by a group representing such a wide variety of multi-sectorial businesses.
