Local MP Maggie Throup today signed the Environment Pledge in Ilkeston with Jane Proctor of Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.

So far 201 MPs have signed the Green Alliance pledge which states: ‘I believe that following the EU referendum, the UK government, working with administrations in Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh, must build a healthy and prosperous future for all.

This means a thriving natural world on land and at sea, clean air and water, communities connected to nature, and a sustainable economy.

For the wellbeing of my constituents, for people at home and abroad, and for future generations who will depend on a flourishing and secure planet, I will do everything in my power to:
• establish the UK as a world leader on the environment by committing to match or exceed current environmental, wildlife and habitat protections;
• ensure the UK leads on climate change by publishing robust low carbon investment plans and ratifying the Paris Agreement in 2016;
• create a countryside richer in nature by supporting farmers and landowners to deliver environmental benefits alongside a thriving farming sector.’
Jane Proctor, Head of Business Development said: “We are delighted that Maggie has signed the pledge and we firmly believe that this is a pivotal time for wildlife and wild places in Derbyshire, we have a great opportunity to strengthen current protection and enable conservation organisations to carry on their great work.”

Maggie Throup stated: “I was delighted to sign the Environment pledge as I know just how important protecting our environment is, whether that is locally, nationally or globally. It was also good to learn more about the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust and its vision for the future.”
