The world’s scientists have warned of the severe consequences of a deepening climate crisis on our physical security, access to water and our way of life.
After 40 years of deindustrialisation and unmanaged globalisation we are left with a hollowed out economy, wage stagnation and deepening inequality – and the planet is literally burning.
Labour has already made the UK the first country in the world to declare a climate emergency, but we won’t stop there.
We must come together now with a bold vision that matches the seriousness of the crisis we face.
We must grasp this opportunity to transform our economy and usher in a new era of public luxury based on social and climate justice.
In power, Labour will pull all the levers of government to tackle the climate crisis and kickstart a Green Industrial Revolution to transform lives. We’ll create green unionised jobs and achieve social justice on issues like housing, regional and structural inequality, public transport and unemployment.
