“Since starting work in the green technology sector in Swindon, I’ve been pushing hard at UK and EU level for more investment in the infrastructure we need for a greener and more sustainable future. I’m working hard to make sure our green industries of the future greatly reduce our carbon footprint and stop us littering harmful plastics across the countryside and in the oceans”. – Sarah Church
Net Zero Carbon by 2050 is a great aspiration, but we need to do more than just legislate for it. Our children and grandchildren are relying on us to make the deep changes to our carbon-based economy that will slow down and halt man-made climate change. Labour’s plan for a Green Industrial Revolution will see clean energy and green tech at the heart of an industrial strategy to drive economic growth and tackle climate change.
Labour’s plan will see the creation of over 400,000 good sustainable jobs, installation of solar panels on nearly 2 million homes, investment in clean public transport, a commitment to 60% of the UK’s electricity and heat from clean, renewable and low carbon sources by 2030, and a new Clean Air Act.
