sustainability hub

election programme

sustainability hub is a collaborative initiative promoting engagement between political leaders, industry executives and third sector groups working towards a smarter,  more sustainable future. Sustainability hub members represent some of the UKs biggest businesses, influential academic institutions, cross-sector trade groups and major environment NGOs urging government to take a leading role in sustainable development and the green economy.

The sustainability hub has rapidly established itself as an influential coalition bringing together political leadership with member organisations, to support a range of policy issues and initiatives fostering sustainable growth.

The 2014/15 election programme will deliver a series of engagement activities including: Political Party Conference receptions, a green growth conference featuring Danny Alexander MP, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, an original research project assessing the impact of the swing voter and a Parliamentary sustainability games initiative targeting. The schedule of events, private meetings, education initiatives and campaigns will run to the General Election in May 2015.

Major corporate partners and NGOs have pledged their support to the sustainability hub building a formidable coalition working across the challenging political landscape to press the case for political action on sustainable policy; promote clean tech development and encourage energy diversity.

In 2013 sustainability hub members included: the UK's largest steel; energy services; LPG and heat pump companies as well as WWF, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, RenewableUK,  Sustainable Energy Association and several academic institutions. Many industry influencers and stakeholders attended our events promoting smart economic development to special guests Ed Davey MP, Secretary of State, DECC; Greg Barker MP, Climate Change Minister and Caroline Flint MP, Shadow Secretary of State, DECC.

The sustainability hub is a politically neutral organisation working with the major political parties to deliver an effective cross party programme based on high level engagement with political leadership. With in-depth industry knowledge in the energy and environment sector we ensure access to the latest political and industry happenings and position our members in the debate.
