Scientists for 2030

In February 2021,  the government’s ex science adviser Sir David King and others wrote a letter to Boris Johnson

Public for 2030

In November 2019 YouGov found that 56% of people back the total decarbonisation of the UK economy by 2030

Councils for 2030

To date, 116 Local Authorities have set a 2030 target for their own emissions and their whole District/County/Borough

ASK YOUR CANDIDATES & COUNCILLORS TO SIGN THE 2030 PLEDGE

The local elections are an opportunity to ask all your candidates, as well as existing councillors, to pledge to work towards the 2030 target.

As a Councillor, I pledge to do everything in my power to ensure our local authority works in collaboration with the local community to:

  • set a target date of no later than 2030 to reach net zero emissions for our whole District/County/Borough.
  • develop and implement an ambitious Climate Action Plan that allows people, enterprise and nature to thrive
  • ensure that tackling the climate and ecological emergency is a priority in all the actions and decisions of the local authority

I will continue to inform myself about the climate change and biodiversity crises in order to better influence policy making, and to lead by example.
