Countdown to COP26 - Green Recovery Plan


The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) starts in Glasgow in less than three months.

To fight climate change and clean up our air, the UK needs to show true leadership, not the complacency shown by the Conservative Government.

Liberal Democrats have a plan for a green recovery, creating jobs and tackling the climate emergency.

These measures would be good for Bromley, the country and the planet.


⚡️Invest now so Britain gets 80% of its electricity from green energy by 2030

Only half of Britain's energy is generated from renewable sources. Switching to green energy is vital for cutting emissions and meeting our climate change commitments.

 

🍃Restore the UK's natural environment by cleaning up our waterways, restoring peat bogs and planting trees

4 in 10 British species are in decline and the UK is failing to meet 17 of its 20 biodiversity targets.

In Bromley, we're fighting to protect our open spaces - learn more.

 

🚆Invest £40 billion over three years in rail, buses, trams and electric vehicles

Transport is the UK's biggest source of carbon emissions. We need to give local communities better transport options with more, cleaner buses, electric car charging and better trains and trams.

In Bromley, we're campaigning for a joined-up approach to transport between Bromley Council, TfL, and National Rail - learn more.

 

🏠Upgrade insulation in all existing homes by 2030 and require all new homes to be eco-friendly

Energy usage in our homes accounts for 14% of UK emissions. The Conservatives have scrapped the Green Homes Grant, taking us backwards.

 

🧒Create a £20 billion Clean Air Fund to help create safe walking and cycling routes to schools, and invest in pollution-free public transport

1 in 4 pupils attend schools in areas over air pollution limits. The UK has broken air pollution limits for a decade.

In Bromley, we're pushing for more ambitious initiatives to clean up South East London air - learn more
