A major aspect of Chatham House’s activity is its Environment and Society Programme. Chatham House has worked with the UN COP26 Presidency to convene business leaders to explore innovative solutions to accelerate climate action and to share a collective vision for a world in which 1.5°C increase in global temperature can be achieved.

Chatham House and the International Council on Environmental Economics and Development (ICEED) have partnered to coordinate their research and analysis on carbon neutrality and energy security. Together, Chatham House and ICEED are monitoring trends and evaluating key issues around carbon neutrality and energy security.

To keep the goal of achieving only a 1.5°C warmer world within reach, it will be absolutely essential that governments enhance their climate commitments and ensure that net-zero policies are implemented.

Over the next five years, a high-quality research team formed from the two institutions will monitor, research and analyze insights about carbon neutrality and energy security regulations and policies with a particular focus on the European Union and the UK.

This project is directed by Co-director Antony Froggatt (Chatham House) and Co-director Kazunao Sato (Executive Director of ICEED).
