About the CEE Bill

The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill calls for the Government to develop an emergency strategy that: 

  • requires the UK to play its fair and proper role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions  consistent with limiting global temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial  temperatures; 
  • ensures that all the UK’s consumption emissions are accounted for; 
  • includes emissions from aviation and shipping; 
  • protects and restores biodiverse habitats along overseas supply chains; 
  • ensures that all efforts are made to reduce emissions. In sectors where emissions  are unavoidable, such as agriculture and construction, natural climate solutions are  prioritised. Negative emissions technologies may only be used in these sectors and only  where there is evidence that they cause no environmental damage; 
  • restores and regenerates the UK’s depleted soils, wildlife habitats and species populations  to healthy and robust states; 
  • sets up an independent Citizens’ Assembly, representative of the UK’s population, to  engage with Parliament and Government to develop the emergency strategy.
