Labour's green plan

The Labour party's green plan is inextricably linked to social justice, as climate change disproportionately affects the world's poorest people and is also a cause of poverty, disease and hunger. Labour's approach is always about social justice.

Included in the plan are details of what a Labour government will campaign for at the UN Climate Change summit in Paris later in 2015. 

In Paris, Labour will work for a global, legally-binding and ambitious agreement that includes:

• Ambitious emissions targets for all countries, strengthened every five years on the basis of a scientific assessment of the progress towards the two degrees goal.

• A goal of net zero global emissions in the second half of this century.

• Transparent, universal rules for measuring, verifying and reporting emissions.

• All countries adopting climate change adaptation plans.

• An equitable deal in which richer countries provide support to poorer nations in their efforts to combat climate change.

It's clear that we have a choice about who we want to represent the UK at the Climate Change Conference  in Paris - Ed Miliband, who has a track record as a past environment secretary who passed the first UK Climate Change Act, or David Cameron, whose government has famously described environmental action as 'green crap'.
