Vincent Neate, Head of Climate Change and Sustainability at KPMG on financing the transition to a sustainable ‘blue’ economy, in response to Prince Charles’ keynote speech on sustainability today. He said:
"We know so much more about the business imperatives for environmental responsibility than we did even five years ago. Whilst it still takes Prince Charles to convene, today's attendees are increasingly relevant to driving real change. The economic case for fisheries protection is quite easy to make because of the ability of protected zones to allow life to flourish. We need to convene because the obvious economic benefits will only be realised through collaboration."
