About Zac Goldsmith

Zac Goldsmith was the Editor of the Ecologist Magazine for 10 years. He stepped down in 2008 after being selected as the Conservative Party Parliamentary candidate for Richmond Park and North Kingston. He remains Director of the Ecologist.

In 2005 he was asked to oversee a wide-ranging review of environmental policy for the Conservative Party. The Quality of Life Policy Review was delivered to David Cameron in September 2007. Many of the recommendations have since become Party Policy.

He would be exactly the kind of bold,
environmentalist-first politician that this
country has been crying out for for years

Roger Cox, The Scotsman


In a society of curmudgeons we are going to need bright, attractive and above all optimistic people like Zac Goldsmith if the planet has any kind of future.
