Standing Up for the Environment

11 May 2017

Today, 11 May 2017, co-leader Caroline Lucas launched the Green Party’s General Election Environment Manifesto, promising an inspiring vision for the natural world.

Caroline said:

“We are the only party to put the environment at the heart of all our policies.

“Our economic prosperity depends on the natural world.  It is the ultimate source of everything we make and use - from food and materials, to the air we breathe.

“Even the digital economy depends on rare earth metals and huge amounts of energy.  And we rely on delicate ecological systems to sustain life on earth – from bees pollinating our crops to trees absorbing carbon dioxide.  Building a successful economy is not at odds with protecting our environment: it is impossible without it.

“The UK must lead the world in building a green economy and investing in a viable future – one that respects and nurtures the natural systems on which we depend.”
