blanchettCate Blanchett was in Copenhagen yesterday participating in the World Business Summit on Climate Change. The actress took to the stage to demand that business leaders around the world seek eco-friendly methods to decrease their carbon emissions and increase sustainable practices.

She told the conference, “Political failure at Copenhagen in December is quite simply unacceptable and this powerful room must play a major role in preventing this failure. Australia’s best climate scientists have been warning us that we’ll face many more catastrophic fire days in south-east Australia unless the world acts to dramatically cut greenhouse pollution.”

This isn’t the first time Blanchett has raised the banner on climate change initiatives. Back in her native Australia, the 40-year-old has regularly helped launch nation-wide green campaigns. Most recently, in October of last year, she helped open the World Metropolis Congress in Sydney which covered issues facing cities around the world; including climate change, financing public infrastructure, urban renewal, and social sustainability.
