Climate Action Unit

The Climate Action Unit works to change how scientists, policymakers, businesses, media, civil society organisations and citizens engage with each other about climate change.

Our approach is underpinned by a systems-based understanding of why governments, businesses and citizens are not acting at the scale and pace needed - and how this can be resolved.

The aim of this work is to accelerate the uptake of climate action and the transition to net-zero across society. 

We support experts and organisations to navigate the complexity of cross-sector collaboration. Our work focuses specifically on three areas: 

  1. Improving the way climate risk information drives decision making in policy and business
  2. Telling more diverse stories about climate change to better motivate action
  3. Helping key communities to deliver climate-positive action
