A message from Sir David Attenborough

“All is not well with our planet. As we are increasing our pressures on Earth, we are now crossing irreversible tipping points. What we do in the next 10 years will profoundly impact the next few thousand. If we act now, we can yet put it right.”

Our mission

Climate LinkUP connects scientists, industry professionals, policy-makers and local communities across the world. By sharing knowledge, skills and expertise from different sectors and regions, we aim to accelerate the development and implementation of innovative, science-informed climate solutions.

The Montel Group is a stakeholder in Climate LinkUP, which was launched on 1 December 2021. Through our collaboration with Climate LinkUP, we aim to make the energy sector a more proactive partner in delivering the solutions for reaching required emissions reductions and sustainability goals.
