Influencing the UK Parliament

The IES is committed to promoting the crucial role of environmental science in society and an evidence-based approach to decision and policy making. One of the most effective ways this can be achieved is through influencing Parliament. It can however be time-consuming and difficult to navigate the parliament website. The IES has therefore put together this information pack to inform members of the various routes to influencing the UK Parliament over issues, policies or legislation.

Updated in November 2012, January 2015, July 2015, January 2018, January 2021, and December 2022 to reflect changes in positions and committees.

Our open access commitment
We are firm supporters of open access as we believe we have a moral responsibility to make environmental science widely available to affect change. If you appreciate the availability of this information and have found it useful, please consider
