Environment APPG Cop28 Reception

Strengthening Parliament’s role in developing environmental policy

The oldest established all party group in parliament for environmental issues, the Environment APPG was established to strengthen the influence of parliamentarians on public policy and provide a forum for debate as well as access to specialist information.

Our activities span across three broad themes: climate and energy, waste and resources, and natural environment.

The Chair of the group is Trudy Harrison MP, and the secretariat is provided by Green Alliance. Its membership is made up of parliamentarians, businesses and organisations.



"Some APPG's are backwaters in parliament, but what Anthony and the team have done with the Environment APPG is quite remarkable" - Rt Hon. George Eustice MP 

"The Environment APPG is a crucial bridge between parliament, business and civil society and a most valuable forum for networking and discussion, whether it’s organising away-days to renewable energy sites, ministerial briefings on climate policy or evening receptions. Solar EnergyUK is proud to be a member" - Chris Hewett, CEO of Solar Energy UK

"Nature is in crisis, and the Environment APPG is one of the leading cross-party groups in Westminster advocating for action to tackle biodiversity loss and climate change. As a member, the RSPB value the great work of the APPG and the role they play for the environment sector across Parliament" - Beccy Speight, CEO at RSPB

 "The Environment APPG is a great forum that brings together politicians, NGOs and the business community to discuss some of the biggest challenges of our time. As well as networking and events, the APPG plays a big role in making sure environmental policy is well evidenced and gives opportunities for participants to be heard in policy debates" - Craig Melson, Associate Director for Climate, Environment and Sustainability at TechUK

"The Environment APPG isn't just a nice to have, it isn't just an extra, it is core to our life on earth" - Alex Sobel MP
