Danish supplier, Danisco, has signed the Copenhagen Communiqué on Climate Change, an international measure to coordinate green measures such as carbon cutting.

The company said an “ambitious agreement”​ needed to be reached at the United Nations Climate Change Conference on December 15.

It is critical that the delegates conclude a strong deal in December so that the impact of climate change will not be as extensive as in the worst predictions,”​ said Danisco chief executive officer, Tom Knutzen.

Knutsen added: “I have signed the communiqué which calls for a strong political response and clear guidelines for states and organisations globally. Without clear political objectives and legislative mandates organisations are not likely to go beyond their current business strategies and further drive clean technologies, develop environmentally beneficial products, or increase their operational efficiencies.”
