Policy & Advocacy Working Group

This collaborative group coordinates on government engagement and maintains oversight on the role of companies and industry associations in delivering constructive climate policy outcomes.

Meetings are held every two months, with occasional ad-hoc briefings and discussions as needed.

When drafting submissions or developing major research publications we consult with ad-hoc sub groups.
