Prince Charles' plan to save the planet: Terra Carta

Charles, the Prince of Wales, who has formed a Sustainable Markets Initiative India Council and held a roundtable with leaders from the India private sector on December 16, told TOI: "As one of the world's largest economies, India and its organisations have a crucial role to play as we address our climate and biodiversity crisis". The Initiative provides a road map to 2030, moving towards a sustainable future rooted in the transformative power of nature and the energies, resources and innovation of the private sector.

The Prince of Wales has today launched a 10-point pandemic recovery charter that challenges businesses to "put nature, people and the planet at the heart of global value creation" over the next decade, in a move backed by scores of major corporates high profile names such as including Unilever, BP, and BlackRock.

Prince Charles is making an urgent appeal to Indian CEOs to give their support to the Terra Carta (Earth Charter) he is launching on Monday.

The alliance aims to encourage 10 billion dollars worth of commitments from founding Terra Carta supporters by 2022, which will be invested in companies and projects providing solutions to preserve and restore natural capital - renewable and non-renewable resources such as clean air and water and fertile soils.

Later on Monday, the French president, Emmanuel Macron, the United Nations secretary general, António Guterres, and the Chinese vice premier, Han Zheng, will address the One Planet summit.

"Therefore, as we look to a brighter and more sustainable future, with our promises kept, let us join forces and waste no more time".

The heir to Queen Elizabeth II's throne is urging private industry to sign up to the plan that he hopes will "reunite people and planet" with almost 100 actions to become sustainable by 2030.

'For numerous problems we face, nature, with the benefit of billions of years of evolution, has provided us with solutions. "With the clock ticking, it really is up to us to make each day count".

Charles, 72, has championed environmental causes for decades and has warned that global warming and climate change are the greatest threats to humanity. It's being backed by huge global corporations including HSBC, Bank of America, and BlackRock - companies historically linked to the fossil fuel industry, according to the Guardian.
