Environment expert hails Scottish efforts
One of the world's leading experts on climate change has praised Scottish businesses' efforts to try and combat climate change.
Around 100 business leaders recently attended the Prince of Wales' Business Summit on Climate Change in Edinburgh - with roughly 87 per cent of these pledging to work with Scottish Business and the Community (SBC) and the Carbon Trust to try and lower emissions.
The forum was one of the first business-led actions to try and combat climate change in Scotland and was organised jointly by the SBC and the Carbon Trust.
Sir Crispin Tickell, who is one of the world's leading authorities on climate change, said that businesses could be hit by climate change, describing it as "one of the most important issues of our time".
"It's a real initiative by top businesses to register the climate change issue, or what I would call the climate destabilisation issue, very loudly and clearly in their own affairs," The Scotsman newspaper quotes the expert as saying.
