Rennie commits to climate change action

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP has today backed an agreement to act on climate change.

The agreement, brokered by WWF Scotland, commits Scotland’s parties to providing comprehensive plans to tackle climate change in their 2016 manifestos.

Scottish Liberal Democrats have consistently nailed their green credentials to the mast, with 5 green laws featuring on the front pages of the party’s Westminster manifesto.

Commenting, Willie Rennie said:  

“Our 2016 manifesto will have social justice at its heart. Liberal Democrats want a country where people stand for and with their neighbours. At the core of our vision will be a radical agenda to tackle climate change in way which is credible, affordable and sustainable.

“I want to meet our world-leading climate change targets, which have been missed for four years running. I look forward to publishing our plans and continuing to uphold our role in this important debate.”
