Our nature programme

We work with Conservative parliamentarians and councillors to champion market-led and conservative solutions to restore our natural environment.


We have a responsibility to halt the decline in biodiversity this decade by producing food sustainably, using our resources more efficiently, cleaning up our rivers and seas, building homes in a nature-friendly way, and properly protecting areas for nature on land and at sea.


We believe that farmers are the custodians of our countryside and that public money should pay for the delivery of environmental public goods which are not adequately rewarded by the market.


Our nature programme is currently working on policies and campaigns to tackle water pollution, develop a more sustainable food system using our post-Brexit freedoms, create a more resource efficient economy, and protect and manage 30 per cent of our land for nature by 2030.
