Party leaders' climate agreement

February 2015
Party leaders' climate agreement
Green Alliance brought the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition together in a cross-party agreement to tackle climate change. David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband signed a pledge in February 2015 to seek a global deal which limits temperature rises to below 2 °C, sets carbon budgets according to the Climate Change Act and accelerates UK’s transition to an energy efficient and low carbon economy. 

The agreement has been widely welcomed across the political spectrum and from business leaders, marking a milestone for the UK in the build up to the Paris summit in December 2015.
