Our work under this theme focuses on securing the political leadership and action needed to tackle climate change and other environmental problems.
We are exploring the opportunities for a new economic model that is good for business, quality of life and the environment.
We facilitate dialogue between the major environment and development NGOs and government, aiming to ensure that the views of these organisations are considered in political decisions.
The overarching aim of this theme is the need to develop the infrastructure necessary to secure a low carbon future for the UK.
Working together with leading companies, we are identifying new policy insights and understanding the external barriers to sustainable business in the UK and internationally.
This theme focuses on accelerating the fundamental shift from a primarily 'end of pipe' view of waste to a more upstream and joined-up approach, promoting vastly better resource use.
We aim to help strengthen the social foundations of political action on climate change, by bringing the power and influence of civil society to bear on the political process.
Through our Green Living work we aim to persuade government that there are attractive policy opportunities to encourage and enable people to live more sustainably.
