General Election 2017
Our election 2017 manifesto asks
Urgently publish a plan to meet our Climate Change Act goals, and our international pledge to help keep global temperature rises under 1.5 degrees, make all electricity carbon free by 2030 and ban fracking.
Ensure all the environmental protections gained as part of the EU become UK law, and commit to a new law to make sure our countryside and wildlife gets better over time.
Ensure farming subsidies are only used to help farmers to protect and improve the countryside and protect wildlife. Permanently ban the use of bee-harming neonicotinoid pesticides.
End the public health crisis of illegal air pollution levels by 2018, phase out diesel vehicles by 2025 and aim to meet World Health Organisation air quality standards.
Cut food waste in half by 2030 and slash the plastic pollution of our seas and rivers by 2020.
Ensure the public can hold politicians to account in court when the environment is harmed and protect the right of civil society to speak out. Give refuge to those fleeing the consequences of our climate chaos.
Friends of the Earth is party politically impartial. Our aim is to ensure all parties have the strongest possible policies to protect the environment.
