Fighting for Our Environment

I'm delighted to have been nominated for the award of Britain's "Greenest MP" by The Climate Coalition ahead of their #showthelove awards in March - wish me luck!

One of my biggest concerns as your MP is that we look after our planet. I'm working on both a national and a local level, from championing the UK adopting a "net zero by 2050" target for our CO2 emissions, to tackling plastic pollution at Saltburn.

It's really nice to receive this recognition from The Climate Coalition, who are a group of over 130 organisations including Oxfam, the RSPB and National Trust, all dedicated to protecting our planet.

Whether or not I win is beside the point - we can all make a difference to ensuring our children and grandchildren get to enjoy the same beautiful world that we do, and I'm proud to be part of this.
