Greenpeace UK has said world leaders should aim for more than "just another sticking-plaster deal" on climate change.
Executive director John Sauven said: "Never has a generation of world leaders stood a better chance of clinching a global climate deal.
"This time there's enough momentum to aim for something better than just another sticking-plaster deal with a short shelf life.
"David Cameron now has the opportunity to argue for a similar system that can drive a global countdown towards zero emissions - he should seize it with both hands."
Greenpeace International has been forced to apologise to supporters after a a series of leaked emails revealed financial mismanagement and the jet-set commute of a senior manager.
Coming after it emerged that a staff member lost £3 million of public donations in currency tradings, the documents show that Greenpeace International's international programme officer, Pascal Hustings, works in Luxembourg but flies to the group's headquarters in Amsterdam several times a month.
The 250 mile journeys, at approximately 250 euro a trip, are paid for by Greenpeace funds despite its various high-profile campaigns to curb the growth in aviation. Mr Husting defended the arrangements to the Telegraph, saying:
"I spend half my life on skype and video conference calls. But as a senior manager, the people who work in my team sometimes need to meet me in the flesh, that’s why I’ve been going to Amsterdam twice a month while my team was being restructured."
Kumi Naidoo, Greenpeace’s top executive director, also defended the flights to the Guardian:
“Pascal has a young family in Luxembourg. When he was offered the new role he couldn’t move his family to Amsterdam straight away. He’d be the first to say he hates the commute, hates having to fly, but right now he hasn’t got much of an option until he can move."
The emails also revealed major unease about the restructuring of the organisation: over the next few years 75 jobs will be moved from Amsterdam to Brazil, Indonesia, China and other countries on the front line of climate change.
