MPs’ Pledge for the Environment

MPs’ Pledge for the Environment

We have asked MPs to support the following Pledge for the Environment:
I believe that following the triggering of Article 50, 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 driving the Paris Agreement’s implementation internationally.
  • Create a countryside richer in nature by supporting farmers and landowners to deliver environmental benefits alongside a thriving farming sector.
  • Make the UK a world leader in innovative and sustainable marine and fisheries management. 
Following the 2017 general election we have revised the text of the Pledge for the Environment to reflect new developments, including the ratification of the Paris Agreement on climate change and the triggering of Article 50.

We regularly update this page as more MPs sign the pledge. If you are an MP, and would like to sign the Pledge for the Environment please email:
