The All-Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group (APPCOG) is the leading forum for Parliamentarians from both the Houses of Commons and Lords, to work together to discuss ways of tackling carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, to improve government policy on carbon monoxide safety, and to raise public awareness of the threat posed by deadly CO gas. Through its busy programme of events and research, the Group seeks to push the vital issue of carbon monoxide safety up the political agenda. In doing so, the Group works closely with a coalition of CO campaigners, charities and energy industry companies committed to tackling CO poisoning in the Stakeholder Forum.
