Issue: Responding to and shaping climate and environment policy and trends in the UK and EU plus technical policy and export licencing.
Outcome: Members are kept updated on government and regulatory activity through a mixture of real time bulletins, a fortnightly monitor plus detailed summaries and guidance on what new developments could mean for businesses.
As well as these updates, we convene roundtables, conference calls and facilitate meeting and engagement with senior Whitehall officials, primarily DEFRA, BEIS, the FCO and Home Office. Current priorities include reforms to producer responsibility, eco-design, chemical law (RoHS and REACH) as well as modern slavery, responsible sourcing and human rights. We are also working to shine a light on the tech sectors role in helping to deliver net-zero emissions, climate action and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Our deep dive events bring together experts, government, industry and civil society to explore how a range of sustainability issues impact the sector. Recent events include events on human rights in the tech supply chain, responsible mineral sourcing and how to set robust and ambitious climate targets.
