We are a politically impartial, multi-stakeholder alliance championing a
competitive and environmentally sustainable economy. Through targeted political
engagement, evidence gathering and policy development, we advocate the business
case for decarbonising the UK economy, improving resource efficiency and
investing in the natural environment.
We are a small organisation with 8 members of staff (increasing to 10 in
2024). For the past two years, we have participated in the Race Report and

Cambridge to create an annual internship aimed at students from a BAME and/ or

course, with an optional specialism in EDI. We commit that any learnings from
this course will be implemented within the next six months, including a
Diversity and Inclusion Policy.
3) We commit to working more closely with our
staff with protected characteristics to signpost support groups and advocacy
groups that we could join, as we are too small to form our own.
4) We commit to
holding more open conversations with our staff about EDI and that leadership on
EDI will come from the top of the organisation.
