Industry groups want G7 countries to align climate ambitions -BDI By Reuters

FRANKFURT (Reuters) – The Group of Seven (G7) economic powers should align international climate protection ambitions along the lines of a “climate club” proposed by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, the head of the Business 7 (B7) group of industry lobbies said on Wednesday.

A joint statement by B7 members to the G7, a copy of which was seen by Reuters, was presented by the German Federation of Industry (BDI) on behalf of the group on the opening day of a three-day meeting of G7 environment, climate and energy ministers in Berlin.
