Below is a full transcription of Al Gore's keynote speech at the 2017 Ashden Awards Ceremony in London, UK
Thank you very much ladies and gentlemen. I want to thank Krishan Guru-Murthy for his introduction and of course I want to first of all acknowledge Sarah Butler-Sloss who has done a magnificent job in running this organisation. Thank you so much.
As the Founder and Director and a judge as well, and to you and all of your team, to the Chair of the Ashden Board of Trustees, Diana Fox-Carney, to my partner and co-founder of Generation Investment Management, David Blood, who was here, and one other personal acknowledgment. There are some members of the Climate Reality Project here. Charles Perry and other Climate Reality attendees are here and I wanted to acknowledge them as well. Thank you very much.
In addition to helping clients communicate, connect and change, I love highlighting stories from the front line of inspiring sustainability.
