Letter to the Prime Minister

We've called on David Cameron to intervene in loss of green policies
Letter to the Prime Minister
Within the first three months of the new government ten different environmental policies have been watered down or scrapped, according to our analysis with a group of nine other leading UK environment organisations.

In a letter to the Prime Minister from Green Alliance and nine other groups, we have called on him, as a matter of urgency, to clarify his government’s approach to environmental protection and climate security in what is a vital year for action on climate change.

An exploration of how business can go further
Sustainability strategy
Corporate trailblazers have been looking for ways to reduce their environmental and social impacts for over 40 years. For many leading companies, it is now part of everyday business practice. Yet, for many more, sustainability is still not central to their business strategy. So, what would encourage more businesses to go further?

Our microsite Business strategy for a better world features our Catalyst Debates, discussing issues around consumer opinion, sustainable agriculture and the attitude of Generation Y, and the views of five experts on the advantages and obstacles in creating business strategy for sustainability. 

A UK climate plan for 2015

We set out the decisions the government needs to make this year
A UK climate plan for 2015
In February 2015 the prime minister signed a climate pledge, promising action in three areas. 2015 is an important year for climate decisions, so there's a need to act fast to be able to deliver on these promises.

Together with CAFOD, Christian Aid, Greenpeace, RSPB and WWF, we‘ve published an action plan, setting out the key decisions the government needs to take to make sure the UK helps to secure a good deal at the global climate conference this December; that there is clarity on the UK’s low carbon energy transition; and that the government leads on energy efficiency.
