Peter Bakker, WBCSD

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development has helped mobilise business for the French government and developed a project called the Low Carbon Technology Partnerships. Peter believes the business sector is committed to a 2 degree world and tells us that business are seeing opportunities in the low carbon transformation. The WBCSD have told their member that the move to a zero carbon society is inevitable. Peter thinks that every year and at minimum every 3 years businesses need to come out and declare what progress has been made so they can be held accountable. Finally, Peter comments on the Disclosure Task Force and says this is a real break through in making companies transparent in their carbon footprint and will lead to comparability.
