Down to Zero Procurement Compact Prospectus
May 2012 – The UK Government and The Prince of Wales's Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change (UK CLG) both stand committed to reducing carbon emissions and supporting a rapid transition to a low-carbon economy. The Climate Change Act (2008) - a world-leading piece of legislation - has created a binding, legal pathway of emissions reductions, driving the decarbonisation of large parts of the UK economy. To follow this pathway and deliver on these goals there needs to be a dramatic increase in the supply of affordable low-carbon goods and services.

ClimateWise Principles: Fifth Independent Review, 2012
November 2012 – Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is recognised by the International Energy Agency (IEA), amongst others, as a core component of a cost-effective strategy to limit global temperature rise to 2°C by 2050. The IEA has projected that investment of USD 2.5 to USD 3 trillion from 2010 to 2050 in CCS will be needed to achieve the required reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The CCS industry globally, however, is still in an early stage of development.

Regulation for resilience – a regulatory revolution for sustainability
February 2012 - How can we create a truly sustainable economy? We believe one essential way is to create a radically new regulatory paradigm for the 21st century. Traditional 20th century regulation has had its day, and a revolution is needed. The goal posts have moved, and we need to reinvent our regulatory systems accordingly. In the 21st century, societies will need to regulate for resilience.

Jane Nelson: What is corporate sustainability leadership?
October 2011 – ‘Business as usual’ is totally inadequate to meet this challenge. So too is incremental change at the margin. Transformational or systemic change is necessary, and in its absence our shared prosperity and stability are at risk.

A Logical Framework for Climate Leadership
October 2011 – An opinion piece by Mike Brown, Chief Executive, Nedbank Group; Mark Cutifani, Chief Executive, AngloGold Ashanti. Both are members of the South African Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change. The UN climate change negotiations that South Africa is soon to host (28 November to 9 December in Durban) can seem rather confusing. They cover very complex political and scientific territory on which international negotiators have been trying for no less than 17 years to reach agreement.

Seize the Day: A Call to Action for UK Climate Leadership
June 2011 - This is the critical time. The decisions made in this parliament will either set the UK firmly on the path to a low-carbon economy or send us well off track. The UK leads the world in ambitious targets to tackle climate change. We are the first country in the world to extend legally binding targets well into the 2020s. We have the opportunity to transform our economy and lead the world down a path of green growth, well-managed climate risks and decarbonisation. The opportunity must be seized now, or else we risk missing out on new markets and locking in high-carbon, maladapted investments.
