Emma Wilson, Ben Garside

Briefing, 2 pages

This Opinion discusses how business can deliver low-carbon technologies to the ‘bottom billion’ and support sustainable development by working more closely with government agencies, development practitioners and local communities in designing and delivering products and services.
