Greenpeace is placing more boulders in the Dogger Bank Marine Protected Area to stop destructive bottom trawling as the UK government has failed to commit to boosting legal protections for this sensitive habitat
In response to today’s announcement by Unilever, John Sauven, Executive Director of Greenpeace UK, said:
Ahead of the upcoming general election campaign the UK’s largest environmental groups, as well as human rights, development, faith and health organisations have set out a series of demands for party leaders in order to tackle the climate and nature emergencies.
A major loophole in the Environment Bill will give the government nearly two decades to meet future legally-binding targets.
18 civil society organisations, supported by millions of British people, have warned Sajid Javid that the government is on course to miss its net zero target without a big investment in climate and nature.
Greenpeace warns of “dangerous gulf” between ministers’ promises and reality on the ground
