Ed Smith said: ‘Professional service firms have a huge role to play, but
those which are planning to advise others on sustainable business must get their
own house in order first to pass the credibility test. Our challenge to the
profession worldwide is to build climate consultancy into their client services
and exploit all opportunities for a low-carbon economy,’ he added.

need to develop long-term commercial strategies.
Richard Chaplin, Managing Partners’ Forum executive director added: ‘The
professions play a vital role in promoting clients’ carbon efficiency.’
