Climate Policy

Our engagement with independent directors, business leaders, academic and industry experts repeatedly highlights the importance of clear, consistent and stable policy frameworks to support and accelerate climate action.

The Centre collaborates across the University of Cambridge to engage with national, regional and local policymakers to inform and encourage development of policies and initiatives to accelerate climate action, with a particular focus on climate governance and law for climate action.

At a local level, we are exploring local authority planning laws, powers and barriers to the net zero transition and ways in which to overcome these barriers.

In partnership with the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP), we run the secretariat for the Cambridge Zero Policy Forum, a multidisciplinary community of senior academics contributing evidence and expertise to public policies for the transition to a sustainable, inclusive, and resilient net zero society.
