ACTION TO ENHANCE THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
We support the establishment of a new legal framework to halt and reverse the decline in our ecosystems, so that future generations can enjoy and be protected by the UK’s natural inheritance.
ACTION TO SECURE THE FUTURE OF RURAL AREAS
We support a new system of rural payments that is based on the principle that public money should be used to secure ecological gains for the benefit of the public, and promotes a vibrant rural economy including high-quality, sustainable agriculture.
ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE
We believe that climate change creates severe risks for global stability and prosperity, and that the UK must therefore continue to lead the way not only in promoting adaptation but also in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
ACTION TO PROMOTE CLEAN GROWTH
We believe that the best future for UK manufacturing industry lies in clean growth, and that government policy should therefore support R&D and investment in clean technologies.
ACTION TO BUILD PROPERLY DESIGNED HOUSING
We believe that the nation has a responsibility to ensure the provision of high quality, affordable homes for all our people — and that house building, if properly conducted, is fully compatible with preserving and enhancing the quality of the environment.
ACTION TO PRESERVE SPECIES AND OCEANS
We believe that the UK has — and must seize — the opportunity to lead the world in ending the illegal wildlife trade, halting the annihilation of species, and restoring the health of our oceans.
ACTION TO TACKLE AIR POLLUTION
We support the promotion of electric vehicles, alongside active transport and increased planting of trees to tackle air pollution on our roads and streets.
