ELM & Commercial Opportunities

With Luke Pollard, MP & Shadow Environment Secretary

17TH JUNE ’21 | 10:30AM

Rural Policy Group is a visionary action-oriented think tank and advocate for rural policy across the United Kingdom. Originally set up with a rural focus, RPG quickly expanded into healthcare and environment social governance (ESG) realising a systems-thinking approach was needed to tackle today’s business challenges and create a more resilient economy and society.

RPG provides a voice for the rural economy in the UK, facilitating dialogue between rural businesses, allied industries and government. As we enter a new post-Brexit and post-COVID paradigm, the policy group continues to support small businesses, multi-national companies and public sector organisations alike to achieve greener, more equitable growth for UK PLC, and improve the lives of people living in rural and remote communities.
