Caroline backs Pledge for the Environment

Environment campaigner, Caroline Flint, is among the first MPs to back the Pledge for the Environment.

The campaign launched by environmental campaigns groups, under the umbrella of the Green Alliance, are seeking to guarantee protection of the UK's environmental standards, when the UK leaves the European Union.

Said Caroline: "Since I was first elected as an MP, the UK has been a country at the forefront of improving our environment at home and globally.

"The UK has done this by protecting the cleanliness of our seas and beaches, and by working with farmers to improve and enhance biodiversity in the countryside.  I am determined we will remain leaders in seeking to tackle climate change and making Britain cleaner and greener, long after we leave the European Union.

"I have pledged to everything in my power to:

• Establish the UK as a world leader on the environment by committing to match or exceed current environmental, wildlife and habitat protections.

• Ensure the UK leads on climate change by publishing robust low carbon investment plans and ratifying the Paris Agreement this year.

• Create a countryside richer in nature by supporting farmers and landowners to deliver environmental benefits alongside a thriving farming sector.

"I hope my constituents share my ambition."
