UK businesses ''committed'' to combating climate change

British businesses are committed to reducing their carbon emissions and tackling climate change but both government and consumers need to unite with industry to effectively deal with the issue, a new report has claimed.

The Climate Change Task Force report, published by the Confederation of British Industry, called on government to form a partnership with the UK''s businesses to help reduce emissions both at work and at home.

And the study also highlighted the importance of providing opportunities for households to reduce their carbon emissions, calling for a halving of the UK''s carbon output by 2020.

Ben Verwaayen, the chairman of the task force, said: "This is a call to action to the wider business community whose support we need, an offer of partnership with government, and a commitment to empower consumers."

"This is not just a challenge, it is also the chance to become leaders in a new low carbon economy. In business, in government, as consumers and citizens we are all part of the solution."

The Carbon Trust offers interest free loans of between £5,000 and £100,000 for businesses looking to increase their energy efficiency.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18370053-ADNFCR
