Supporting a New Environment Manifesto

Earlier this week I gave my full support to the launch of a new environmental manifesto that explores new policy ideas to address climate change and biodiversity loss.

I am a member of the Conservative Environment Network (CEN) MPs‘ caucus, and have signed the manifesto's declaration which acknowledges the gravity of the global environmental crisis and our duty to preserve and restore our planet for future generations.

climate change is the most important issue of our time, my constituents have asked me to do more, and this is the first step in that. I absolutely support the manifesto’s five core principles, which includes committing the UK to displaying global leadership on this important issue and supporting innovation to deliver the net zero emissions target.

Last month Parliament passed a law which commits the Government to ending Britain’s contribution to climate change by 2050. I also welcomed this commitment in the House of Commons chamber, and recently met Mid Worcestershire residents at a mass lobby event in London, where people from across the country travelled to Westminster to lobby MPs to commit to tackling climate change.
