WHAT IS THE CEE BILL?
The Climate and Ecological Emergency (CEE) Bill – is a plan for a new UK law that addresses the full extent of the climate and nature crisis in line with the most up-to-date science. The Bill is the only proposed legislation before the UK Parliament that ensures a comprehensive and joined-up approach to the emergency and acknowledges the full extent of the UK’s emissions and ecological footprint as well as its responsibility to ensure that it prevents and reverses damaging impacts, globally, so that the least developed nations still have the chance to develop sustainably.
Why should Christians support the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill?

MORE ABOUT THE BILL
The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill was developed with members of the successful ‘Big Ask’ campaign (a Friends of the Earth initiative which led to the Climate Change Act 2008), Power for People, whose Local Electricity Bill we support, as well as top scientists, economists, lawyers and academics – just take a look at the ‘hall of fame’ at the bottom of this webpage.
The CEE Bill sets out a whole-of-government emergency plan to rapidly transition away from fossil fuels and reverse the destruction of nature. The Bill is about:
- Tackling the climate and nature crises together
- Doing our fair share to cut UK emissions and stay below 1.5°C of global warming
- Halting and reverse UK biodiversity loss by 2030
- Taking responsibility for the entirety of our global carbon and ecological footprints
- Involving the public in a fair way forward
The second reading of the Bill is currently scheduled for 18 March 2022.
