Business His most recent works include The Stern Review a review of the economics of global warming .missioned by the British Government and published in 2006. Widely acclaimed by many of his colleagues, it generated a sense of shock and horror in those less familiar with the subject as he likened the potential economic damage as greater than the .bined effects of World War I, World War II and the Great Depression of 1929. In 2009 Stern published Blueprint for a Safer Planet: How to Manage Climate Change and Create a New Era of Progress and Prosperity, a must read for all seriously concerned about climate change. With an insight into current political strategy on climate change, he provides a relevant and critical input for business in deciding how to tackle the future challenge of reducing carbon emissions by up to 80% by 2050. Although he helped formulate Labour government policy, he is currently in discussion with Conservative Party leaders on the formation of the Green Investment Bank initiative.
