DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) - British opposition leader Keir Starmer said on Thursday that the meeting of global business leaders in Davos was an opportunity to speak to CEOs and investors who could partner with a future Labour government to push its green prosperity plan.

Starmer said during a panel discussion at the World Economic Forum annual meeting that a renewables strategy was needed that bound together the challenge of high bills, the next generation of jobs and an obligation to tackle the climate crisis.
