Dear Prime Minister and Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng,
We need to use public money to support a managed phase out of oil and gas production, decent green jobs and a just transition for workers and affected communities. It’s time to stop propping up the fossil fuel industry.
I call on you to end unfair tax handouts for big polluters and to redirect that money to the people and places that need it most - the communities that can lead and shape a greener, fairer future.
The longer you delay, the harder it will be to transition away. Now is your chance to deliver on your promise to build back better.
You have already taken the bold step of ending taxpayer support for fossil fuel projects overseas. Now, you must do the same at home.
The whole world is watching.
