COP21: Business warning on climate policy

The UK government's plans to cut green energy subsidies have been criticised by the head of one of the world's biggest companies, as business leaders arrive in Paris for the UN conference on climate change.

Paul Polman, chief executive of Unilever, aims to make the company "carbon positive" by 2030, using only renewable energy.

But he is concerned that the government's decision to remove financial support for wind and solar power sends the wrong signal.

He spoke to business editor Kamal Ahmed.
