We need international co-operation to cut climate change

A leading lawyer has called for international co-operation from governments in order to create a world-wide low carbon economy.

Vanessa Harvard-Williams, global head of environment with legal firm Linklaters, wants to see governments start to 'cascade' their commitments down as regulations to help business.

As, she says, 'business needs detailed regulation to be able to make the investment' in transforming towards a low carbon economy.

She also called on the governments of the US, China and India to work together on reducing climate change.
