A member of the Australian Conservation Foundation, the Benjamin Button actress urged business leaders to cut down on emissions and invest in environmentally friendly and sustainable practices.
"Political failure at Copenhagen in December is quite simply unacceptable and this powerful room must play a major role in preventing this failure," said Blanchett, who cited the tragic bush fires in her homeland as a devastating consequence of climate change.
"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," she added.
