Thanks to Labour, Parliament has now declared an Environment and Climate Emergency. Now we need rapid and comprehensive action to respond to this emergency. Labour talks of Green Industrial Revolution, built on the principles of social justice, equality and dignity at work and with the overarching mission to decarbonise the economy.
What will the Green Industrial Revolution look like? How do we kick-start action? What role will renewables like offshore wind play? How do we ensure the Green Revolution is worker-led, and supports all communities? And how do we ensure every sector of the economy decarbonises?
