Chris Huhne welcomes business support for 30% emissions cut #wwf

Energy and Climate Change Secretary Chris Huhne has today welcomed the call from over 70 European companies for the European Union to increase its climate ambition and move to a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2020 from 1990 levels. Chris Huhne said: “More and more businesses now realise that Europe’s future prosperity lies in a low carbon economy. “There is a danger that the current lack of resolve from the EU will put a brake on the growth aspirations of some of Europe’s biggest firms. “Backing from major corporations such as Ikea, Coca Cola and M&S will put greater pressure on the EU to raise its emissions reduction target to 30% and to establish clear incentives for low carbon growth as soon as possible.” The declaration signed up by European companies can be found on the WWF website .
