The Progressive Policy Think Tank
Topic: Environment

Mainstream political and policy debates have failed to recognise that human impacts on the environment have reached a critical stage, potentially eroding the conditions upon which socioeconomic stability is possible. Human-induced environmental change is occurring at an unprecedented scale and pace and the window of opportunity to avoid catastrophic outcomes in societies around the world is rapidly closing. 

IPPR has two major programmes of work in this area - Responding to Environmental Breakdown and the Environmental Justice Commission chaired by Ed Miliband MP, Caroline Lucas MP and Laura Sandys.
