12 national governments, including 9 Pacific Island states are calling for countries around the world to back their proposal for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty to negotiate a fast, fair and well-managed energy transition.

The UK has a responsibility to stand with the Pacific Island States, as their populations are at risk of mass displacement and other human rights violations due to the ensuing climate crisis.

That’s why I’ve tabled Early Day Motion 743 in support of a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty, asking the UK Government to endorse the Treaty as a way to manage the energy transition quickly and fairly.

It is clear that multilateral action is vital to managing an equitable transition from fossil fuels, and with the urgency required given the scale of the climate crisis and the escalating threats it poses to human rights, there is a need to take domestic action for a fair phase-out of fossil fuels—for example legislating for a ban on new coal mines.

This is to ensure the phase-out process begins as soon as possible so that workers in the UK and globally are supported into new sustainable industries.
