Driving Policy Action and Ambition
CMI develops independent, non-partisan, evidence-based and pragmatic policy positions through engagement with its members and broader industry. This engagement includes direct conversations, CMI hosted forums, and surveys as well as through its governance, working group and taskforce structures. CMI works constructively with governments to encourage clear, longer-term priorities and enabling policies that support businesses to deliver climate action at scale.
CMI promotes the importance of both public and private sector engagement in climate solutions. It develops public policy priorities as well as priority activities in supporting voluntary corporate engagement to boost effective domestic, regional and global carbon markets. CMI recognises that market mechanisms will need to be integrated with, or support, a broader policy toolkit requiring targeted sectoral approaches to achieve a just and sustainable transition with the urgency required.
