Conservative Party manifesto 2024

Leo Mercer, Policy Analyst at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics and Political Science, said:

“Compared to the 2019 manifesto this disappointing document shows a lack of ambition and vision, even if they have restated their commitment to net zero by 2050. This manifesto does not provide a credible set of policies that will deliver on either net zero or climate resilience.

“If this manifesto was serious about tackling climate change, kickstarting growth and safeguarding our energy security, it would have included a comprehensive industrial plan that would improve the grid, create green jobs and keep bills down.”
