There is no bigger threat facing humanity than climate change.
During our conference we have set out our plans for energy – plans that are ambitious, will create hundreds of thousands of jobs and will make Britain the only developed country outside Scandinavia to be on track to meet our climate change obligations.
This will mean working with unions to ensure jobs and skills are protected as we move towards a low-carbon economy. And working with industry to change the way we build to train the workforce that will retrofit homes and work in the new energy industries too.
We have announced that our programme of investment and transformation to achieve a 60% reduction in emissions by 2030 will create over 400,000 skilled jobs. Good jobs based here and on union rates bringing skills and security to communities held back for too long.
And we will go further, with plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero by the middle of the century.
It’s ambitious and it will be delivered with the most far-reaching programme of investment and transformation in decades.
Labour will kick-start a Green Jobs Revolution that will help tackle climate change, provide sustainable energy for the future and create skilled jobs in every nation and region of the UK.
