    Almost 90 big companies pledging to slash greenhouse gas emissions

    Almost 90 big companies in sectors from food to cement to telecommunications are pledging to slash their greenhouse gas emissions in a new campaign to steer multi-nationals towards a low-carbon future


    We Mean Business, a coalition of advocacy groups, says dozens of companies have joined the initiative leading up to a United Nations summit taking place tomorrow, which aims to spur faster action on climate change.

    The coalition was launched in June with a call to action by the United Nations, business and civil society leaders.
