The All Party Parliamentary Group on Climate Change Group was established in 2005 to 'raise awareness of the threat of climate change and to promote policies to counter that threat.' [1]

The APPCCG was launched when TheCarbonNeutral Company joined with MP's Stephen Byers and Colin Challen to raise awareness about climate change and formulating effective policies for mitigation and adaptation.

It is one of the largest and most prominently active parliamentary groups, amassing 150 members of Parliament and 100 Associate members. Membership is open to any business, NGO, MP or government department interested in tackling climate change and leading the way to a low carbon future. [2]
