About the Advocacy Toolkit

The climate, energy and nature crises call for consistent and bold leadership from the private sector and governments. As companies are increasingly aware that policy is a key driver in enabling them to develop and scale up their activities, those which strive to completely integrate sustainability in their strategy and activities are engaging in the decision-making process and supporting ambitious climate policies throughout all sectors of the economy.

The purpose of this toolkit is to provide businesses with a regularly updated resource, informing them of the latest progressive business practices, policy developments and related advocacy. To do so, it sets out what constitutes climate leadership for a business, explains why it is important for businesses to engage on policy, showcases the momentum of businesses taking action and provides examples of positive advocacy.
