SERA - Labour's Environment Campaign in partnership with VRM Tech and UK100
Urgent action is needed across business and from all levels of government to clean up toxic air and decarbonise our energy. The opportunity and benefits of moving to clean energy can help us tackle the dangers of polluted air that contributes to thousands of premature deaths, and a health issue particularly for some of the country’s poorest areas.
Labour leadership and action is seen from London to Liverpool. In this year’s local elections, Labour manifestos had bold pledges on air quality and renewables, Labour cities are putting in place policies and practical solutions to tackle air pollution and decarbonise energy, despite the Government failing to give funding or powers that council’s need.
The Government is failing to act, and has been taken to court for not meeting air pollution targets and Ministers have overseen a slump in investment in clean energy. It is time for change, for action and for the UK to benefit from the clean energy revolution.
