Greenpeace blocks Europe's premier business summit to climate laggards

Greenpeace activists shut Europe's premier business conference for an hour this morning to highlight a growing split in the businesses community around the green economy and Europe's climate target.

At about 9.30am this morning, 170 activists closed the conference to companies opposed to further reducing Europe's climate emissions and challenged the wider European business community to become climate leaders by supporting a 30 percent target.
