Tp who m may concern,
Thank you for contacting me about climate change.
As Conservatives, we have always cared deeply about our environment. It was under our party that the UK became one of the first countries to call for global action on climate change and, since then, we’ve taken a leading role on the world stage.
It was under the Conservatives that the UK became the first advanced economy to legislate for Net Zero emissions by 2050. We have already reduced emissions by a quarter since 2010 and boosted renewables to record levels. But we know we have more to do and we will put climate change at the heart of the Conservative agenda.
Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party simply don’t have a credible approach when it comes to tackling climate change. Even Labour-supporting unions have called their plans ‘utterly unachievable’ and their plan to renationalise the energy system will drive away the crucial investment we need to introduce new clean technology and wreck the economy, meaning higher bills for families.
By delivering a truly green Brexit, we can focus on the issues that really matter to people, like tackling climate change and leaving our precious planet in a better condition for future generations.
P.S. As a chartered engineer, I work in Clean Energy sector which contributes to the target of the Net Zero Emission by 2050
