Sandbag is a UK based not-for-profit organisation campaigning for environmentally and economically effective climate policies, with a focus on the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS).
Our campaigns are supported by in-house research that monitors the environmental robustness of the ETS, the distribution of allowances, and how key sectors, installations and companies in the scheme are affected.
Through small changes in carbon markets, both in Europe and across the world, billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide can be prevented from entering the atmosphere; with our analysis and lobbying, we can make sure that’s what happens.
Join us in calling for tighter caps on emissions and/or take direct action to cancel carbon permits now.
Why we are here

The problem is complex, but there’s a simple solution; destroy these excess permits to pollute, and prevent this mountain of carbon emissions crushing the EU’s ambitions to fight climate change.

Many politicians now recognise the problem, but they need to hear from citizens that there’s the will to tackle it. The spare emissions permits will make old, polluting industry a lot of money, even as new technology industries are undermined. Some very powerful people want the system stuck the way it is; politicians need to hear this is not acceptable.

That’s why Sandbag is here, and it’s where you can help. Destroy a tonne of carbon, and send a message to the politicians that the system needs to be fixed, now.
