General Election 2019 Did your MP sign the climate pledge?

The 2019 manifestos: final scores

If political parties do not act urgently on the climate emergency, then the cost to current and future generations in terms of lives lost, livelihoods damaged, and economic harm will be severe.

All the main parties publicly published their manifestos prior to the General Election on 12 December. After analysing policies (and allowing all parties to feed back and clarify points) we shared the final scores on how each party ranks at tackling the climate and ecological crises in their 2019 manifestos.
