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 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 in 2016;
  • create a countryside richer in nature by supporting farmers and landowners to deliver environmental benefits alongside a thriving farming sector.
We regularly update this page as more MPs sign the pledge.

If you are an MP, and would like to sign, please email:
