The letter cites the ending of the Renewables Obligation for Solar energy and Onshore Wind; changes to the Climate Change Levy; the planned selloff of the Green Investment Bank; the cancellation of the Zero Carbon Homes and Zero Carbon Building initiatives; new rules for vehicle tax; the policy U-turn to allow exploration for shale gas in protected areas; the lifting of a ban on neonicotinoids, linked to declining bee populations; and the end of the Green Deal finance scheme.
The letter also notes that both the Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Department for Environment, Food are Rural Affairs, are at risk from disproportionate cuts.
