Climate and Energy Secretary Amber Rudd has responded to your calls for action on climate change

Did you know…in a letter to CAFOD, prompted by your campaign actions, Climate and Energy Secretary Amber Rudd recognised the importance of the UN Paris agreement on climate change as a “clear turning point towards a sustainable and low carbon future”? She also highlighted the important role that Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ played in securing an ambitious deal on climate: “I would like to thank CAFOD for the key role they played in helping to communicate the document and look forward to working closely together to build on what was achieved at COP21.” Together we can make a difference!
