Labor says Boris Johnson needs climate projects from banks and big companies

Boris JohnsonThe government should insist that banks and major companies in the UK make their own climate change plans. Labor Has said.

The opposition is demanding tougher control over large enterprises to ensure their plans are in line with the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global warming to 1.5C.

Labor said Britain’s financial institutions and its FTSE100 companies should adopt a credible plan to announce their carbon footprint and reduce emissions.

In a speech next month Cop 26 Summit in Glasgow, workers shadow trade secretary Ed Miliband He said the top companies can “make a deep difference” in pushing net zero emissions.

“Many of our major financial institutions and businesses are ahead of the government when it comes to climate action,” said a senior Labor MP. “But we need everything to meet the high standards.”

Miliband added: “In addition, we should be asking all other major economies in Glasgow to follow suit.

Labor says investments in London-based firms and financial institutions account for about 15 percent of global emissions. Opposition parties claimed that control could be used to mobilize millions of pounds in pursuit of the Paris Agreement’s ambitions.

Miliband used Wednesday’s speech to attack Johnson’s leadership – demanding that Cop26 fail “to get out of the Sun Lounger and start as governor.”

The shadow minister accused the Conservative government of a “decade of inaction” that halted the progress of renewable energy and contributed to Britain’s current energy crisis.

Referring to the commitment of workers to invest an additional £ 28 billion every year until 2030 to deal with the climate crisis, he accused Chancellor Rishi Sunak of “placing himself as the anti-Green Chancellor”.

The Tory government condemned the slashing of its aid budget at a time when trust between developing and developing countries was important. He argued that “the government was onlookers at best and, at worst, global inaction.”

It comes as Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, used the TED speech to say that communities must be “cautious” when transitioning from oil and gas.

The SNP leader has once again refused to oppose the proposed Cambo oil field development near Shetland, which has been vehemently opposed by climate activists.

Mrs Sturgeon cannot turn off the oil and gas supply in the short term because it could lead to a rise in imports and economic problems caused by mass lay-offs.

But she has repeatedly called for the UK government to reconsider its permits to extract oil and gas from the North Sea in view of the current threat Climate change.

“We have to be careful not to leave people and communities in that transition,” the first minister said. “We have to be careful. We don’t shift domestic production to oil and gas imports — it is counter-productive.”
