G8 Climate Change Roundtable

The G8 Climate Change Roundtable was formed in January 2005 at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The first meeting was held in Gleneagles, Scotland, from 6 - 8 July 2005, to coincide with the 31st G8 summit.

The roundtable was established by twenty-three leading international businesses who co-operatively engaged in a global plan of action. The aim of the group was to ensure that a long-term policy framework is setup to enable market-based solutions in mitigating climate change.

The group devised a Framework for Action which called for technology incentive programs, the establishment of common metrics, for example in energy efficiency and the expansion of emissions trading schemes.
