Davos 2020: Prince Charles offers stark warning over ‘approaching catastrophe’

Prince Charles warned business leaders they needed to make being eco-friendly more affordable to fight the “approaching catastrophe” of climate change.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, he asked politicians and economic leaders what the point of extra wealth was “if you can do nothing except watch it burn”.

Charles used his speech to launch a new Sustainable Markets Initiative, a project that aims to encourage the private sector to be more greener.
