“It is my belief that climate change presents a significant long-term threat to the world. Climate change is now more than the subject of scientific analysis or environmental campaigning. It is on the board agendas of the world’s financial institutions, multinational companies, and businesses. In a single book “The Finance of Climate Change“ shows those opportunities presented to business in the transition to a low carbon economy. I commend it as a valuable and comprehensive resource.“

Tony Blair, Former UK Prime Minister
