Leaders committed to work together for fossil fuel subsidy reform

IISD - Fri, 2015-07-03 18:34
WINNIPEG—July 3 2015—The Friends of Fossil Fuel Subsidy Reform joined 40 senior decision makers from business, government and international organisations to call for the end of fossil fuel subsidies.

Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership convened a high level debate to discuss “The End of Fossil Fuel Subsidies” in London.

The Prince of Wales later endorsed the work of the meeting calling for the abolishment of fossil fuel subsidies, by reiterating that “shifting these subsidies could cut global emissions by about thirteen per cent.”  His remarks were made at a dinner convened around the topic of ‘rewiring’ the economy  in favour of sustainable business models that deliver positive outcomes for people and the environment.
