For more than 10 years I've been working for business addressing the climate change challenge. In many ways this has been an encouraging time till lately, demonstrating enhanced concern and will to combat climate change.
However, the current economic crisis have changed this, lately demonstrated by the European Parliament's decision not to support a strengthening of the EU carbon price.
Continuous undermining of the legal instruments, including carbon pricing, is the biggest risk we are facing in the combat against climate change. Business must encourage politicians to maintain focus on climate change, incentivising low-carbon investments.
