A Pledge for the Environment
The divisions caused by the EU referendum make it more important than ever for us all to unite behind our shared environment.
Some people want to paint the referendum result as permission to get rid of environmental protections. But we know that's not what people voted for. Together we're creating a mass movement of support so that, whatever happens next, we can protect the nature and environment that we all treasure.
Will you ask your MP to support the following pledge?
I believe that following the EU referendum, the UK government, working with administrations in Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh, must build a healthy and prosperous future for all.
This means a thriving natural world on land and at sea, clean air and water, communities connected to nature, and a sustainable economy. For the wellbeing of my constituents, for people at home and abroad, and for future generations who will depend on a flourishing and secure planet, I will do everything in my power to:
- Establish the UK as a world leader on the environment by committing to match or exceed current environmental, wildlife and habitat protections.
- Ensure the UK leads on climate change by publishing robust low carbon investment plans and ratifying the Paris Agreement this year.
- Create a countryside richer in nature by supporting farmers and landowners to deliver environmental benefits alongside a thriving farming sector.
