• 100 Days our new campaign is launching soon →

    Incredible! Our election campaign, The Nation Needs You!, has helped us to reach over 50,000 voters and hundreds of organisations from across the UK who want real change on Climate and Nature – now we are ready for the next stage of our campaign.

    Over the coming weeks we will be updating our websites and launching the next campaign on the road to make the Climate and Nature Bill law – 100 Days.

    With a new Government, a new Parliament, we are continuing to keep the pressure up for science-led, joined-up policy to tackle the Climate and Nature crises.

    Together we CAN!

Climate Pledges vs Climate Policy

Press releases covering the latest climate declaration or pledge for nature seem to be a regular occurrence, especially after summits like the G7 or the Biden-hosted Earth Day talks. But pledges are not the same as legislation-backed policy – they’re rarely enshrined by law, and as a result can have varied impact.

In fact, climate campaigners are now highlighting the global heating “gap” between what world’s governments have said they’ll do, and what current policy is set to deliver. Studies by Climate Action Tracker set out the difference, available in depth here, and summarised in the chart below.

So how do we fix that gap? In the UK at least, it’s by passing legislation. The CEE Bill has been designed with this in mind. It’s ideal in that it sets key, existing pledges like the Paris Agreement and Leaders Pledge for Nature into law, as well as providing the framework to update our policy accordingly.

However, while over 100 MPs have backed the Bill, it needs more support. Email your MP to ask them to support it by using this template, or Tweet your MP with this link.
