Election 2019: Party Manifestos Go Green for the ‘Climate Election’

Read time: 4 mins

Climate change has been high on the agenda this election. The UK had its first ever leaders’ debate on climate change (where an ice sculpture stood in for the prime minister, Boris Johnson), more voters than ever before say climate policy will influence their vote, and all parties have been competing over who can make the ‘greenest’ pledges.

But who actually comes out on top?

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Green Party has the most environmentally progressive manifesto, according to analysis by Greenpeace, while the Brexit Party’s manifesto threatens the most damage to the natural world.
