New govt strategy on climate change for third sector

New govt strategy on climate change for third sector
The third sector has a vital role to play in tackling climate change, according to a new government report.

A report from the Department for Environment, Farming and Rural Affairs, entitled Shaping Our Future, has laid out a five-year strategy that will see charities and other third sector organisations support environmental targets through creating jobs and helping communities to become more green.

According to the government, there are around 870,000 organisations in the third sector that contribute around £25 billion to society overall.

The study highlights the importance of social enterprises in conducting research; vocalising public opinion on the environment and creating sustainable public services.

Angela Smith, the minister of the Office of the Third Sector said: "The third sector's unique position means it can tackle environmental challenges through their own organisations and by harnessing the support of local communities and networks which is where real change can be achieved."
