Baring Foundation urges UK voluntary sector to consider impact of climate change

The power of the UK’s voluntary sector is not being fully used in the fight against climate change, according to the Baring Foundation. The Foundation is calling on charities that do not deal with environmental issues to consider how climate change might affect their charitable purposes. ‘Groups in the wider voluntary sector need to use their campaigning skills, and millions of beneficiaries and supporters, to add to the pressure on government and business,’ says Matthew Smerdon, Barings’ deputy director.
