Back the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill

July 14, 2021 9:00 AM

You know how serious the threat of climate change is and the potential consequences for our planet if action is not taken. That's why it's vital that MP's back the UK's recent Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill, soon to be debated in Parliament.

The Bill provides a framework of policies to reduce both the UK's entire emissions and its ecological footprint. There are three areas to the bill:

• Tackling the climate emergency, restricting the rise in global temperature to 1.5°C. In the UK, we need to take into account all our emissions based on production and consumption including those goods manufactured abroad.
• Reversing our ecological crises with strict targets so that nature is visibly and measurably on the path to recovery by 2030.
• Making the transitions in a fair and sustainable way so vulnerable communities don't bear the brunt of the changes
