Pledge for the Environment
Calling on MPs to commit to strong environment laws post-referendum
A coalition of the UK's leading environmental groups are calling on MPs to sign our ‘Pledge for the Environment’ to show their support for establishing the UK as a world leader on the environment following the EU referendum.
We are asking them to commit to match or exceed current environmental, wildlife and habitat protections, ratify the Paris agreement and to support farmers and landowners to deliver environmental benefits alongside a thriving farming sector.
Over 20 MPs are already signed up, and there will soon be an opportunity for the public to ask their MPs to add their names to the list.

Circular economy opportunities for the smartphone industry
How the changing mobile market can benefit the environment
Our new analysis looks at the lifetimes of the mobile phones used by eight million of O2's customers and shows people are using their phones for longer.
This is good news for the environment: extending the life of smart devices can cut yearly emissions significantly, and schemes such as O2 Recycle allows O2 and their customers to capture the value from used devices.
We provide recommendations for how both businesses and government can help facilitate and scale up this circular model.
The end of the upgrade? How O2 is adapting to a more circular mobile market
