Thomson Reuters

The role of the private sector is ever more important in shaping humanity’s future. This is especially true when it comes to climate change. Exercising a disproportionate influence over policy makers, the private sector is both a source of the climate problem – with sectors such as energy production, transportation, industry and agriculture amongst the worst offenders for emissions – and at the same time offers the solutions required to transform our current economic model into a low carbon, clean economy. A world where humanity stands a fair chance to grow prosperously in a clean and healthy environment.
