After seemingly months of electioneering, the day of reckoning has arrived and the UK populace decides who will rule over them for the next 5 years. Here at GreenBuying.co.uk we thought we'd consider what each of the main Parties are offering in relation to the environment and climate change. So we've looked at the manifestos and found the following pledges, starting with the Party who you would expect to be the most eco friendly...

The Green Party

The Greens believe that Government must prioritise action on climate change to avoid devastating hardship to our economy, society and environment.

What are they offering?

How will this benefit the public?

A rapid transition to a zero-carbon sustainable economy will create millions of jobs and secure a safe climate for our children and grandchildren.

The Labour Party

They claim that a Labour Government will play a leading global role in tackling climate change.

What they are offering?

How will this benefit the public?

Cleaner air, creating a healthier environment for generations. Protecting the natural environment, and ensuring a kinder life for animals.

The Conservative Party

The Tories have set themselves the goal of being the first generation to leave the natural environment in a better state when they leave office than when they entered office.

What they are offering?

How will this benefit the public?

?3 Billion will be spent in order to enhance England?s countryside and keep the much loved, treasured greenery. We will continue to do even more to tackle our pollution and clean up our rivers and waterways, including supporting the Thames Tideway Tunnel.

The Liberal Democrats

They spearheaded the UK's push to persuade the EU to set an ambitious target of reducing carbon emissions by at least 40% by 2030. They will carry on greening electricity, getting rid of coal generation by 2025 and setting an ambitious power sector ?decarbonisation? target.

What they are offering?

How will this benefit the public?

Encouraging people to live a healthier, greener lifestyle.

So there you have it. Which one gets your vote? Whilst there are many important challenges ahead for the UK Government, of whatever Party, we can't think of an issue more critical than the health of our environment.
