Ensure future US compliance with the Paris Agreement through future trade deals

I would like the UK government to ensure that any US corporations wishing to benefit from any future UK/US trade deals are either corporately committed to delivering emissions targets contained within the Paris Climate Agreement, or are based within a US state that remains committed through legislation to doing the same.

Why is this important?

Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement could have devastating consequences for all of us. This short sighted move designed to protect the American economy by removing regulation related to emissions cannot be allowed to work. It is all of us who will pay the price, and we cannot allow US polluters to profit from this.

Reasons for signing

  • The planet takes precedence over corporate profits. So does OUR NHS. Don't commit to a trade deal that reneges on these commitments made by May and the UK Government.
  • Whilst it would be tempting to call for a blanket boycott of all US imports, this would be too blunt an instrument. We should acknowledge the many US states, municipalities and businesses who remain committed to the Paris Accord, demonstrating that America is better than Trump.
  • All goods have to help in meeting the Paris accord targets. That is how the world now works
