Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: Sandbag is a UK-based not-for-profit thinktank conducting research and campaigning for environmentally effective climate policies. Our research focus includes reform of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, the EU 2020 and 2030 climate & energy packages, and the persistence of old coal in Europe.

More specifically we aim to:

Scrutinise: Using accessible research and analysis to cast a light on the deeper detail of energy and climate policy.

Advocate for change: lobbying and campaigning for improvements to EU climate policy, as well as working with carbon market policy internationally.

Engage and inform: providing a variety of ways for wider civil society/the public to be educated and become engaged with climate policy, emissions trading, and novel low-carbon technology.

With these broad aims in mind our specific objective is: ensure that the implementation of climate policy in Europe is transparent, cost-effective, and delivers Europe’s required contribution to averting dangerous global climate change.
The organisation's fields of interests are:

Main EU initiatives covered the year before by activities falling under the scope of the Transparency Register:

The main body of Sandbag's work evolves around data analysis and report writing, specifically in relation to EU climate policy, with a focus on the functioning of the EU emissions trading scheme (ETS), the EU 2020 and 2030 climate & energy packages, and the persistence of old coal in Europe. Part of this process involves contacting and engaging with member state officials, Commission officials and elected Members of the European Parliament. Each year, Sandbag's report on the environmental state of the ETS is launched publicly in the European Parliament. Position papers and briefings related to climate policy are also distributed regularly throughout the year to EU institutions.
