The Scottish Greens will put climate change, free public transport and revamping region deals at the heart of their manifesto when it is launched on Monday.
The party, which is standing in more than 20 Scottish seats has confirmed it’s campaign pledges will go further than any other party on climate change.
The Greens will also commit to the roll out of free public transport, which would be paid for by the doubling of vehicle excise duty on high polluting cars and scrapping the freeze on fuel duty.
The document, due to be launched in Glasgow, draws from the party’s Scottish Green New Deal, an action plan designed to address climate change by transitioning from oil and gas as well as massive retraining schemes for those in the sector.
Party co-leader Patrick Harvie said: “Other parties have made commitments to address this crisis in their manifestos, but their actions do not match their words.
“Labour, for example, have already dropped their 2030 net-zero promise and have recently opened a coal mine in Cumbria.
“The Liberal Democrats talk about giving councils new powers to lower emissions, just a month after they voted against exactly that in Holyrood.
“Meanwhile, the SNP are claiming leadership on this issue while taking money from the oil and aviation giants.
“The clearest way to demand climate action in this election is to vote Scottish Green on December 12.”
Mr Harvie’s fellow co-leader Lorna Slater said an independent Scotland, something the party supports, could be a leading light in climate action worldwide.
She said: “This general election comes at a time of unprecedented threats to our democracy, our environment and our future.
“Our Scottish Green New Deal reports have revealed the urgent action the Scottish Government could do now to tackle the climate emergency, to secure thousands of jobs, an integrated public transport system and warm homes for all.
“But with the powers held by Westminster, we could do so much more. This election is an opportunity to push for a written constitution and citizen’s assemblies, but as an independent European country, Scotland could be an agile leader in the global effort to tackle the climate emergency.”
