Seal the Deal at Copenhagen

Statement from Mr. J M S Brito, Deputy Chairman/Managing Director of Aitken Spence PLC in support of the UN Seal the Deal! campaign calling for a fair, balanced and effective post-Kyoto climate agreement at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 15) to be held from 7-18 December 2009 in Copenhagen.

“It is clear that effective action on Climate Change is a global priority to which all responsible entities should be committed to. We have commenced a corporate sustainability strategy which takes a 360° approach on sustainability across various industries in which we operate. As an integral component of this strategy all strategic business units under Aitken Spence have established environmental management systems to manage the environmental impacts of our operations. We encourage action on the Millennium Development Goals and uphold the principles of the United Nations Global Compact. A viable and equitable agreement at Copenhagen is not only a necessity it is also an obligation to the future generations.”
