Scottish Greens Parliamentary Co-Leader Patrick Harvie MSP has welcomed the Scottish Parliament’s backing for a Green New Deal following a debate in parliament this evening.

Patrick Harvie MSP said:

“The promise of a Green New Deal is transforming the climate debate by demonstrating that tackling the climate emergency goes hand-in-hand with job creation and social justice. A Green New Deal would require the mobilisation of all the powers available to the Scottish Government behind the goals of creating quality jobs in the green economy, eradicating inequality, and delivering massive cuts in greenhouse gas pollution.

"I’m delighted that the Scottish Parliament has signalled its backing for a Green New Deal for Scotland following a Green debate this evening. The Greens will keep the pressure on Ministers to ensure they deliver on this important commitment they’ve made.”
