CEE Bill open letter

Henley-based businesses, including big names such as Hobbs of Henley, Brakspear and Ella’s Kitchen, are increasingly signing up to an open letter to Oxfordshire MPs asking them to support the Climate and Ecological Emergency (CEE) Bill in Parliament.

The CEE Bill is a parliamentary bill drawn up by scientists, academics and lawyers, and supported by a growing cross-party group of over 100 MPs along with many businesses. It’s not radical. It would simply ensure that Government policy is brought into line with the latest scientific advice. Businesses know that in order to work towards a sustainable and zero carbon future, they require a strong legislative framework that embeds government targets in law, enabling them to plan and develop future trajectories to fit in with those targets. The CEE Bill would provide this, and would transform the UK’s approach to tackling the climate and biodiversity crisis.

The open letter has been coordinated by the CEE Bill Alliance Oxfordshire, a campaign group seeking to work with local Oxfordshire MPs and councils to ensure policies on climate change and ecological breakdown follow the science.

We are calling out to all Henley businesses to sign up to the open letter here.
