Kingston Environment Forum (KEF) is a network of local environmental organisations which works with Kingston Council to promote environmental sustainability in Kingston upon Thames. KEF began life as Kingston's Eco-Footprint Working Group, developed into Kingston Environment Group and a member of Kingston Strategic Partnership, and changed its name in 2014 to Kingston Environment Forum to reflect its role more accurately.

KEF includes representatives from a range of local groups (charities, not-for-profit groups and groups of volunteers - see Useful Links for a list of member-groups) with an interest in environmental issues and activities in the Borough. Find out more in KEF Terms of Reference, Sept 2018 and our Revised Terms of Reference, Feb 2019.

Our aim is to influence Council plans and to advise and assist on the implementation of the first theme in the Kingston Plan: "A sustainable Kingston: protecting and enhancing the environment for us and for future generations", with its objectives of tackling climate change, reducing our ecological footprint, ensuring sustainable development and transport in Kingston, and protecting and improving the quality of our local environment. Our member-groups are available to advise the Council and others on these themes.
