LEAD FROM THE FRONT.
Climate policy support for your membership organisation.
WHAT IS CLIMATE POLICY?
Climate policy refers to a set of strategies, regulations, and actions adopted by governments and organizations to address climate change. These policies aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote renewable energy, enhance energy efficiency, prepare for climate impacts, and foster global cooperation. Non-oppositional climate policy seeks to create a net zero, sustainable, low-carbon future by guiding actions that mitigate climate change and adapt to its effects.
THE INFLUENCE SANDWICH.
Many trade associations, professional bodies and other representative groups already take and or are introducing a pro-climate action policy position.
Representative organisations [particularly trade and professional bodies] have a top down and bottom-up opportunity when it comes to climate policy. CAFA calls this the influence sandwich.
Representative organisations can lead by example and get their own house in order and simultaneously push their member constituents to take credible climate action, whilst lobbying for legislation, change, standards and support.
The implementation of policies for Representative Organisations flows as follows.
Internal policy position.
The establishment of a policy surrounding the expectation and requirements of your members to implement UN Race to Zero criteria.
Representing and advocating externally the needs of your members to government to ensure policies, finances, frameworks, legislations etc. are in place to support the industry / profession that your membership organisation represents.
CLIMATE POLICY GUIDELINES.
Our guidelines include actions for representative organisations to take internally, externally, and while engaging with members.
UN RACE TO ZERO 5th P HANDBOOK.
The 5th P Handbook’, is a guide for non-state actors on how they can align their advocacy, policy and engagement with net zero goals.
CAFA contributed to the 5th P Handbook and focused on the role of representative organisations and what climate policies they can put in place internally, externally and for their members.
