Vote for a Green New Deal in December 2019

Read about how a Green New Deal would work in the North West.

The Green New Deal will invest in our shared future, funding improvements in:

  • Energy: including the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energy.
  • Housing: including the provision of better insulation for all homes that need it, the delivery of major heating upgrades for 1 million homes a year and the creation of 100,000 new energy efficient council homes a year.
  • Transport: including the delivery of a public and sustainable transport revolution, which will allow people to travel cheaply and safely on new trains, buses, cycleways and footpaths.
  • Industry: including support for businesses to decarbonise and the provision of training to give people skills to access millions of new green jobs.
  • Food, Farming & Forestry: including the planting of 700 million trees and support for healthy and sustainable food and farming systems.
  • Incomes: including the creation of a Universal Basic Income, paid to all UK residents to tackle poverty and give financial security to everyone.

New green homes, new green transport and new green jobs will get us on track to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions to net zero by 2030 and provide new opportunities for everyone to live happier and more secure lives. This will be a combined investment of over £100 billion a year in the Green New Deal, with an additional investment in Universal Basic Income. 

If Not Now, When? To help deliver the Green New Deal, we will deliver four further programmes of reform, closely integrated with our Green New Deal proposals:

Remain and Transform. A People’s Vote to decide the way forward on Brexit, in which the Green Party will campaign for remain. A commitment to realise the full potential of the European Union to lead the fight against the Climate Emergency and to improve the lives of workers, low income families and refugees.

Grow Democracy. Replacing First Past the Post with a proportional voting system, giving 16-year-olds the vote, reforming government to better combat the Climate Emergency and devolving power to councils.

The Green Quality of Life Guarantee. Reversing austerity and funding our public services, tackling discrimination, ending the war on drugs, restoring our natural environment and making wellbeing the focus of our economy.

The New Deal for Tax and Spend. Ending wasteful spending on government vanity projects and reforming our tax system so that the wealthiest pay their fair share.
