The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group, together with the Aldersgate Group and E3G wrote to the Prime Minister in November 2013 calling for ambitious initiatives on green growth to be put at the heart of EU-China discussions.

The three organisations set out the critical opportunity to align European and Chinese interests on the green economy, and develop a new approach to the EU-China relationship which maximises mutual opportunities and better manages trade pressures.

The Prime Minister responded, recognising the organisations’ extremely useful work with UK Government departments to raise the issues and opportunities represented by green growth. He also noted that the organisations’ comments had been taken on board in preparation for the EU-China Summit and were reflected in the resultant EU-China 2020 Strategic Agenda for Co-operation.
