One week before the climate summit in Bali, the Confederation of British Industries (CBI) will be presenting a report on the UK government’s efforts to reach its greenhouse gas reduction targets (6O% by 2050). The report recognises the business opportunities related to the fight against climate change and proposes new nuclear power plants as one of the solutions. It also warns that the necessary policies will cost the average home in the UK 100£ per year.
CBI has for years opposed most measures to tackle global warming but seems now to have changed its rhetoric by going for the “green is good for business” slogan.
