Corporate Leaders Groups

Business leadership for a climate neutral economy
CLG UK Engagement 883x431

Since it was established in 2005, The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group (CLG) has worked to develop solutions on climate change with policymakers and business peers across the world. The group works at the UK level to raise policy ambition and drive the transformation to a low carbon economy, and projects those insights outside the UK by working in partnership on the international stage. It works closely with a sister group convened across Europe – CLG Europe – and with other business groups in the We Mean Business coalition.

As a focused cross-sectoral group, the CLG 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.

The group is united by a commitment to work towards a sustainable and prosperous future. It 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 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.
