About the commission

Following the 2009 Lancet-UCL Commission on Climate Change, international experts have come together in a new commission to respond to the health emergency of climate change.  The commission comprises climate scientists, economists, energy and health professionals from leading institutions around the world. It is working to these principles:

  • Climate change is a health issue
  • Actions will benefit health and save money
  • Solutions are within our grasp
