Climate Change

Government backsliding over environmental targets isn’t helping Britain. The old economy of oil and gas is on the way out, and it pays to be at the forefront of a new green industry.

Cutting carbon emissions helps reduce global warming, but it’s also a social benefit. Home heating is a major strain for a typical household. We’ll also act to restore our natural environment, which helps reduce flooding and water shortage.

  • Grants and incentives to retrofit homes and reduce energy needs
  • Plant 60 million trees a year to restore woodland habitats
  • Cut greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2045
  •  Convert 80% of UK electricity to renewables from 2030

At Horsham District Council, the Lib Dems are creating nature recovery networks across the district to help endangered species bounce back. And through the HDC Local Plan, all new houses must be built to true net zero standards, which could save £1k off the average energy bill.
