Oxfam reaction to B20 leaders' proposals on climate change

Published: 11th November 2010

Reacting to business leaders’ proposals on climate change, Jeremy Hobbs, Executive Director of Oxfam International said:

“Unlike the G20, the B20 get the urgency of climate change. If we all are to survive and prosper, the G20 should adopt their proposals: put a price on carbon, immediately step up energy efficiency, and keep the promise to abolish fossil fuel subsidies.”
