The Aldersgate Group is an alliance of leaders from business, politics and civil society that drives action for a sustainable economy. Our members include some of the largest businesses in the UK with a collective global turnover of nearly £600bn, leading NGOs, professional institutes, public sector bodies, trade bodies and politicians from across the political spectrum.

We are politically impartial and champion the important role of the business sector in moving the UK and the EU towards a sustainable economy. We call on government to: 

  • provide policy stability to allow for long-term planning and investment in tomorrow’s low carbon and resilient infrastructure
  • set a high level of ambition in terms of environmental protection, in keeping with the severity of economic damage that unabated climate change and continued environmental degradation will cause
  • seize the economic benefits that tackling environmental challenges and building an efficient and low carbon economy can provide, by helping to build a competitive advantage in sectors where the UK and EU are well positioned.

What we do

We develop independent policy solutions based on the expertise and diversity of all members. Through our membership, we aim to represent every sector of the economy, allowing us to advocate change that benefits all parts of the economy. We engage with key decision makers, holding private roundtables with thought leaders to agree new approaches, member roundtables to brainstorm new ideas and public events to publicise important topics.
