Business leadership for a climate neutral economy

Engagement with Policymakers

CLG Europe works to develop solutions on climate change with policymakers and business peers across the world. The group engages at the EU-wide and member-state levels to raise policy ambition and drive the transformation to a low carbon economy, and projects those insights outside Europe by working in partnership on the international stage.

 

Through its Green Growth Partnership, the CLG Europe works closely with the Green Growth Group of EU climate and environment ministers and supportive Members of the European Parliament, as well as maintaining a network of sister groups across the EU. One of the founders of the We Mean Business coalition, for which it provides the EU policy lead, CLG Europe works in partnership with some of the largest business focused organisations in support of climate action.

The cross-sectoral group is able to convene thoughtful and engaged discussions with policymakers, where the challenges and opportunities of securing a sustainable economy can be explored in a setting that is often informal, intimate and in an atmosphere of trust.

Members of CLG Europe are united by a commitment to work towards a sustainable and prosperous future.  The group is diverse enough that its perspectives will not be limited to any one sector or interest. These characteristics and the high quality facilitation provided by the secretariat allow broader, deeper and more focused engagement with policymakers around the actions required to raise climate ambition, build low carbon policy and drive innovation to deliver a low carbon society.

Whilst many of the CLG’s discussions are featured here, some of the most thoughtful and interesting take place in closed discussions that allow a free exchange of ideas, experience and best practice.
