Blueprint for a new Environment Act presented to Number 10
With the UK’s departure from the European Union just months away, IEMA and its members are working to influence the development of an “ambitious” new Environment Act.
Working as part of the Broadway Initiative, IEMA has been contributing to proposals for the new Act, and a member consultation on the scope and principles closed on 31 October. Shortly before then – on 17 October – IEMA’s chief policy advisor Martin Baxter and other key players in the Broadway group were invited to brief the prime minister’s environment advisor on their proposals for the new Act at 10 Downing Street. The briefing was well-received, and Martin and the Broadway representatives look forward to working with the government on further developments.
Members will be updated about progress and feedback on the proposals, and what the outcome will mean for UK environment and sustainability professionals. To find out more about the Blueprint, click here.
