Government publishes Clean Growth Strategy
Commenting on the government’s Clean Growth Strategy, published today, Friends of the Earth senior climate campaigner Simon Bullock said:
“This strategy is a welcome change in the politics of climate change in the Conservative Party. While the plan has some huge gaps the government is rightly presenting tackling climate change as a massive opportunity for economic rebirth, and for Britain to lead the world.
“But clearly there is far more actual policy needed – the plan does not deliver on UK targets for cutting emissions, let alone the more ambitious Paris climate agreement, and some parts of government are still firmly stuck in a rut of more fossil fuels, roads and runways.”
