About Us

The Conservative Environment Network is an independent forum for the advancement of the doctrine of Conservative Environmentalism.

Conservative Environmentalism sees the health and economic resilience of future society as partly rooted in decisions taken today. It accepts the environment within the purview of conservative politics. It favours decentralised solutions which harness the power of free markets, thereby aligning economic and environmental health. Where necessary, it asks governments to facilitate such markets. It recalls to us the clear messages handed down by generations of conservative thinkers from Edmund Burke to Adam Smith to Margaret Thatcher. It reclaims the positive environmental track record of conservative governments around the world.

The Network is not a policy think tank or commercial lobbying organisation.

Only a revived conservative focus on responsibility, innovation, and well-functioning markets will secure a stable society and healthy economy for present and future generations.

Society is indeed a contract. It is a partnership not only between those who are living but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born.”
Edmund Burke
The core of Conservative philosophy and of the case for protecting the environment are the same. No generation has a freehold on this earth”
Margaret Thatcher
