CEOs call for zero emissions goal in Paris climate deal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A group of high-profile CEOs on Thursday called on world leaders to agree to bring the balance of greenhouse gas emissions to zero by mid-century in a global climate change deal to be finalized in Paris in December.

The leaders of Team B, a coalition about 12 CEOs and policymakers including Virgin [VA.UL] founder Richard Branson, Unilever chief Paul Polman and Tata International’s [TATAI.UL] Ratan Tata, said a global net-zero emissions goal by 2050 will prompt businesses to embed new investments and clean energy research into their business strategies.

State Department should weigh oil drop in Keystone decision: EPA

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. environmental regulator urged the State Department to weigh plunging oil prices in its forthcoming recommendation on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, saying such a drop could mean the project will lead to higher greenhouse gas emissions.

With crude oil prices falling by about half since June, more attention should be paid to the “potential implications of lower oil prices on project impacts, especially greenhouse gas emissions,” the Environmental Protection Agency said in a Feb. 2 letter to the department made public on Tuesday.
