A Green Industrial Revolution, at the Heart of Labour's Green New Deal

  • "The most significant political highlight of the last decade"  (Ellie Mae O'Hagan, Guardian, 25 Sep 2019).

  • Aiming for NET ZERO carbon emissions by 2030.

  • Unions and climate activists united in support for tackling the climate crisis.

  • Fundamental understanding that the system is broken.  We have an opportunity to create something new.

  • Voted into Labour Party Policy at the Party Conference in September 2019.

  • The Manifesto rightly has the environment at the top of its agenda.  We are in a climate and environmental emergency which Labour are determined to change.

  • This country will lead the way in transforming our economy into one which is low in carbon, rich in good jobs, radically fairer and more democratic.

  • We need to cut emissions in half by 2030 if we are to avoid leaving an uninhabitable planet for future generations.

  • Our Green Industrial Revolution will create a million jobs to transform industry, energy, transport, agriculture and buildings in the UK, whilst also restoring nature.

  • Prioritising sustainability will lead to a more equitable and enlightened economy in which our environment is protected, communities are united and a better quality of life is experienced by all.

  • We cannot ignore the blossoming global movement calling upon us to wake up and act on the climate and environmental emergency.  We must act to help communities at home and abroad who are most affected by it.  

  • We must act now because our children will suffer the consequences if we don't.

  • Full mobilisation of national resources will be needed to achieve our aims.
