Climate Pledge 2030 is asking all candidates in the forthcoming local elections in England, Scotland and Wales to sign a pledge to commit to work towards the 2030 Zero Carbon target:
“As a Councillor, I pledge to do everything in my power to ensure our local authority works in collaboration with the local community to:
- set a target date of no later than 2030 to reach net zero emissions for our whole District/County/Borough.
- develop and implement an ambitious Climate Action Plan that allows people, enterprise and nature to thrive
- ensure that tackling the climate and ecological emergency is a priority in all the actions and decisions of the local authority
I will continue to inform myself about the climate change and biodiversity crises in order to better influence policy making, and to lead by example.”
