We have a decade in which to set ourselves firmly on the trajectory to a zero-carbon economy if we are to stand a hope of keeping global warming to a maximum of 1.5C and avoiding dangerous climate change. Combatting the climate and ecological crisis must be established firmly at the heart of policymaking, so we’ve published our recommendations for the next government.
We declared a climate and ecological emergency. Environmental professionals hold the key to developing and implementing solutions to the climate and ecological emergency, and we must also recognise how our own activities contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity loss.

We've trawled through all of the manifestos from the main political parties and put together a tracker of each of their pledges on the environment.
We'll update the tracker when any new manifestos are published.Download environmental pledge tracker
