Driving Policy Action and Ambition

CMI’s policy positions are determined by its Board, in consultation with, but independent from, its members. These policy positions represent what the Board considers to be best practice and in line with CMI’s mission and do not represent any CMI individual, member company, or industry sector.

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.
