Make Polluters Pay -

For a Just Transition to Zero Carbon

 

This year the UK is hosting the G7 summit in Cornwall. The Green Party is calling the UK and the leading governments of the world to introduce a tax on carbon. A powerful tool to reduce emissions and build a fairer society.

Why a Carbon Tax?

A Carbon Tax is a powerful tool to reduce the amount of fossil fuels that we are using. The oil, gas and coal industries will have to pay it, when they sell their products. As this will make fossil fuels for heating and electricity more expensive, the income from the Carbon Tax will be paid out to the general public and invested into climate friendly technologies and services. Experience from other countries shows that when the fossil fuel business becomes less profitable, individuals and companies start making different choices. As a consequence we produce less emissions and clean alternatives, such as renewable energies and climate friendly services, thrive. 

Our Campaigns

On 10 June Jenny Jones and London Green Parties will deliver an invoice to the Treasury as a reminder to the Chancellor of the Exchequer that 800,000,000 tons of Carbon-dioxide are still not being taxed. You can ask your MP to support a carbon tax with our template letter. The climatometer is a tool to help engage with the public on street stalls and with the climate postcard we invite our neighbours to join local party meetings and get involved in our campaigns.  Join the live stream of the Alternative G7 Summit on 10 June that gives the stage to leading Green politicians from around the world.
