Director of the Conservative Environment Network (CEN) Sam Hall today congratulated Liz Truss on her election as Leader of the Conservative party, commenting:
“On behalf of the Conservative Environment Network, I'd like to congratulate Liz Truss on her election as leader of the Conservative Party. We’re delighted that she pledged during the campaign to continue the party's environmental leadership and double down on net zero.
“When Liz Truss enters No.10 tomorrow, she faces a daunting list of crises, most significantly spiralling energy bills. Environmental action can help her tackle this challenge. Insulating homes and building cheap renewables can cut energy bills, stop climate change, and help beat Putin.
“Liz Truss’s strong free market and tax-cutting instincts can help drive environmental progress. We need to unleash private enterprise to innovate clean products and services, which can help us reach net zero and halt nature decline, while removing barriers to expanding the supply of clean energy.”
