Welcoming the launch of the  ‘A world you like. With a climate you like’, the European campaign to promote climate action, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Edward Davey said:

“The EU is a powerful voice when it comes to making the case for action to tackle climate change. By working closely together, the EU and UK form a formidable partnership, that can bring about real change.  This campaign - ‘A world you like. With a climate you like’ - is another example of the innovative approach to making a difference and I’m pleased to announce that DECC is an official partner. 

“Commissioner Hedegaard’s campaign focuses on engaging the business community, including small and medium enterprises.  I support this strategy of engaging with the businesses - big and small - as they are and will be a crucial player in the long term change we need to bring about..”

‘A world you like. With a climate you a like.’ This is the EU campaign to combat climate change and promote a low-carbon society, run by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Climate Action.
