As a Liberal Democrat, I believe that while we have to play our part in getting our economy back on track, we also still have a duty to protect our environment while we do it.
So this week’s Rio+20 Summit is key to pushing forward with the sort of green economic policies the Liberal Democrats have delivered in government:
Funding for insulating homes, a Green Investment Bank, investment in rail travel.
All are achievements we can be proud of as Nick Clegg leads our government delegation to Rio this week. He will give Britain a genuinely green voice at the conference.
