The Koch network (or Koch strategy group) is a network of "business and philanthropic leaders" dedicated to "defending our free society", by which they mean dismantling regulations on business and thwarting action on climate change.

"Twice a year our network meets to review strategies for combating the multitude of public policies that threaten to destroy America as we know it. These meetings have been critical in improving and expanding our efforts."[1]
