The Environment Strategy Council sets the strategic direction for techUK on environmental, human rights, climate change and wider sustainability issues.
The ESC is currently looking at how tech can support the delivery of a sustainable and low carbon economy, make the UN Sustainable Development Goals a reality and how new and innovative tech can deliver the policies of the 25 Year Environment Plan and recent Clean Growth Strategy. It is also responding to the developing UK environmental framework and monitoring risks associated with existing the EU.
The ESC helps members understand their legal obligations, flag future risks, looks at future policy initiatives and inputs into parliamentary, Governmental, EU and wider international sustainability efforts. It has excellent relationships with Government officials and the wider academic and NGO community.
The Council is open to all members with an interest in environment or sustainability issues.
