To achieve a green and prosperous UK for all, we aim to develop policy solutions that create a better future. As well as the environment, we will consider people and social justice when designing environmental policies to bring about a fair green economic transition.
We believe that an inclusive culture is fundamental for people to thrive, and feel valued and recognised. We value a diversity of perspectives and lived experience which enhances our organisational culture and our creative policy thinking.
The environmental and think tank sectors are among the least diverse workplaces in the UK. We are committed to changing that, in both the way we operate and by exercising our influence.
We believe making progress on equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) is essential to our success and we recognise that this is a continuous process of improvement and learning.
EDI is important to us because we want to:
- Design better and more effective policy solutions
- Be an inclusive and diverse organisation where everyone thrives
- Take action to change one of the least diverse sectors in the UK
We are actively working to improve our EDI performance. This is summarised in five objectives for the two years from April 2023 to March 2025:
- We will ensure that, as well as the environment, people and social justice considerations are embedded in our policy thinking, design and advocacy.
- The diversity of the board and workforce will be increased and nurtured, especially regarding socio-economic and ethnic diversity.
- We will build a more inclusive culture at Green Alliance. We define this as welcoming people from all backgrounds, experiences, identities and characteristics, enabling our employees to feel that their differences are valued.
- We will listen to a diverse range of people and enable a greater platform for underrepresented and lesser heard voices across our internal and external work.
- We will play an active and collaborative role within the think tank and environment sectors to increase diversity and inclusion.
