On Friday 15th September 2023, the Climate Essentials team joined the Queue for Climate and Nature. This was a quiet protest, where business leaders came together to demonstrate support for the UK Government to take more drastic action to protect our climate and nature. Collectively, we sent a strong message to all UK political parties:
- Rapidly scale up investment and incentives in renewables, clear the connectivity backlog and drive forward energy efficiency
- Take action to protect and restore nature and halt further decline by 2030
- End new fossil fuel developments in the UK including new licensing rounds and approvals for oil and gas exploration, in line with calls from the UN Secretary-General, climate scientists and the IEA.
