The All-Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group (APPCOG) is the leading forum for Parliamentarians to discover, discuss and promote ways of tackling carbon monoxide poisoning in the UK. Through a busy programme of events and research, the Group seeks to push the vital issue of carbon monoxide safety up the political agenda, to improve government policy, to support research and to raise public awareness of the threat posed by carbon monoxide. The APPCOG draws on a wide range of stakeholders; working closely with leading figures in academia, the scientific and medical community, the civil service, Ofgem, industrial public bodies, gas distribution networks and those with direct experience, such as CO survivors, campaigners and charities. Policy Connect provides the secretariat for the APPCOG, which was formed in 2012. We are committed to ensuring our actions and funding are entirely transparent.

Policy Connect provides the secretariat for the All-Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group, supporting the group’s activities. We are committed to ensuring our actions and funding are entirely transparent. Policy Connect’s work in supporting the APPCOG is funded through a combination of annual fees for membership of Policy Connect and ad hoc sponsorship of particular events and research, all of which is declared on the official Parliamentary Register of All-Party Groups.  We also publish a full list of all of Policy Connect’s funders in bands on our website.

The APPCOG aims to push the vital issue of carbon monoxide safety up the political agenda, to improve government policy, to support research and to raise public awareness of the threat posed by carbon monoxide. The agenda and activities of the APPCOG is set by its Parliamentary Officers, and Policy Connect has full editorial control over the outputs from work produced as a result of this agenda, such as reports. The APPG operates according to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards’ rules on All-Party Parliamentary Groups and its own Code of Governance.

Policy Connect does not represent the business interests of any of our over 200 funders or wider stakeholders. We do contact Ministers on behalf of APPGs, forums and commissions in the form of invitations to speak at events, attend meetings or to submit a research inquiry to assist with Government policy development. For this reason, we are on the Register of Consultant Lobbyists, and welcome the transparency this register provides.
