Action to protect out climate must not become another victim of coronavirus

Yesterday at the virtual UN Climate Action Roundtable, the Prime Minister called on nations across the world to commit to taking ambitious action on climate change and chart a path to a greener and more sustainable recovery from coronavirus, and in doing so, secure the planet for the next generation.  

  • As the world continues to deal with coronavirus, we must look ahead to how we will rebuild, and how we can seize the opportunity to build back better. 
  • The UK will lead by example, keeping the environment on the global agenda and serving as a launch pad for a global green industrial revolution. But no one country can turn the tide – that is why on 12 December when we co-host with the UN an event to mark the five year anniversary of the landmark Paris Agreement, we will use the opportunity to ask world leaders to announce new and enhanced Nationally Determined Contributions that reflect the highest possible ambition, net-zero commitments, ambitious adaptation plans and bold new climate finance pledges.
  • We cannot let climate action become another victim of coronavirus. Let us be the leaders who secure the very health of the planet for our children, grandchildren, and generations to come.
