We’re part of the Greener UK Coalition

Coed Y Bedw

Greener UK is a group of 13 major environmental organisations (including The Wildlife Trusts), with a combined public membership of 7.9 million. We are united in the belief that leaving the EU is a pivotal moment to restore and enhance the UK’s environment.

We have asked MPs to support the following Pledge for the Environment:

"I believe that following the EU referendum, the UK government, working with administrations in Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh, must build a healthy and prosperous future for all.

This means a thriving natural world on land and at sea, clean air and water, communities connected to nature, and a sustainable economy.

For the wellbeing of my constituents, for people at home and abroad, and for future generations who will depend on a flourishing and secure planet, I will do everything in my power to:

• establish the UK as a world leader on the environment by committing to match or exceed current environmental, wildlife and habitat protections;

• ensure the UK leads on climate change by publishing robust low carbon investment plans and ratifying the Paris Agreement this year;

• create a countryside richer in nature by supporting farmers and landowners to deliver environmental benefits alongside a thriving farming sector."

So far 170 MPs have signed but we need your help to spread the word to ensure this message is received.

To ask your MP to sign the pledge, please visit The Climate Coalition’s petition.
