For the past five years, Sadiq’s bold climate agenda has made a real difference. Why throw that away by electing Shaun Bailey?
With the crucial Cop26 summit in Glasgow taking place in November, we are in a vital year of the decisive decade for the climate emergency. And deciding next month who runs England’s capital city will also be a defining question in whether we can win the fight against the accelerating climate crisis.
For the sake of the climate agenda alone, we need Sadiq Khan to be re-elected for a second term. Sadiq has been a true climate leader as mayor right from day one. He’s pushed ahead with the boldest and most ambitious plans of any major city in the world to tackle air pollution, which have already helped cut toxic air by nearly half in central London. He’s delivered a fivefold increase in protected cycle lanes. He’s launched the first stage of his green new deal for London with £10m invested in projects to secure more than 1,000 green jobs, targeted at those who need them the most. And he was the first mayor of any comparable city in the world to commit to becoming zero-carbon by 2030.
