Inspirational Zac Goldsmith Quotes

GM has never been about feeding the world or tackling environmental problems. It is and has always been about control of the global food economy by a tiny handful of giant corporations. It’s not wicked to question that process. It is wicked not to.
Zac Goldsmith

Green policy is about triggering a shift to a cleaner way of doing things. To be effective, it needs to incentivize the right behavior, for example through tax breaks, and that needs to be paid for by disincentives on polluting behavior.
Zac Goldsmith


Politicians usually get the blame for dragging their feet on environmental issues. And fair enough. Most of them do just that. But the blame isn’t theirs alone. For politicians afraid of losing votes, a bristling media waiting to transform good green ideas into monsters is a colossal disincentive.

All schools should teach children basic cooking skills. Every school should be able to buy sustainable, good quality food wherever possible from local sources.

Zac Goldsmith

More passengers fly in and out of London than any other city in the world. We are well-connected, we have ample capacity, and we are starting from a position of strength. The problem is that we don’t use that capacity well.
Zac Goldsmith

If we want to preserve Heathrow’s hub status, we need to stop clogging it up with point-to-point flights to places such as Cyprus and Greece, which between them account for 87 weekly flights, and contribute nothing to overall connectivity.
Zac Goldsmith

While big business gain subsidies and political access, small businesses drown in red tape, and individuals now risk being classified as terrorists for complaining about it. Economic globalization is about homogenizing differences in the worlds’ markets, cultures, tastes, and traditions. It’s about giving big business access to a global market.
Zac Goldsmith

Best Quotes on Zac Goldsmith

Zac Goldsmith

Yes, Heathrow is the U.K.’s busiest airport, but new runways or a new airport are not the answer. It is far better to focus on improving capacity.
Zac Goldsmith

The 5,000 or so acres of Royal Parks is one of the things that make London special.
Zac Goldsmith

The food system is not a free market. In this country, we impose reasonably high standards of animal welfare – but we haven’t applied the same standards to the food we import, so all we’re really doing is exporting cruelty from Britain elsewhere, and at the same time undermining our farmers.
Zac Goldsmith
