MP, Lab Birmingham Northfield
"Climate Change is one of the greatest challenges facing our generation. I am proud that the Labour government set ambitious targets for cutting carbon emissions – but we also need to take practical actions to make sure we hit those targets. Closing shop doors is a common sense solution to how we can help do that – it will save money and cut emissions at the same time. I welcome the Close the Door Campaign and hope shops and shoppers here in Birmingham will take up this opportunity to do their bit for our environment."
