Politics is, in most cases, the way that politicians/lobbyists/constituents work together (or sometimes against each other) to get laws enacted. For the environment that means a group of people working together to make new laws that do things like requiring companies to put a cap on emissions, requiring state officials to stricter on poaching, requiring Congress to come up with a plan to cut country-wide emissions. These all help in protecting the environment.
It provides an enforcement mechanism, essentially. Politics, unlike the actual legislation, affects the soft power that is necessary in order to both get legislation passed, and maintain a positive image within society. Because of politics we can basically paint people/things as environmentally unfriendly and boycott them, in addition to a host of other soft power outlets. There’s more to the effect than just a venue and legislation- politics is essentially a source of social pressure.
