The Committee is chaired by The Rt Hon. the Lord Deben and is made up of experts in the fields of climate change science, economics, behavioural science, business and industry. Committee members have a duty to:
- act impartially and objectively
- avoid conflicts of interest
The Committee is also supported by the Secretariat.
