IEMA input on Environment Bill
IEMA’s chief policy advisor Martin Baxter met with the Chancellor Phillip Hammond and Environment Secretary Michael Gove at 11 Downing Street to discuss the forthcoming Environment Bill.
The Bill is a one-off opportunity to create a coherent framework that puts sustainability at the heart of our economic model.
As part of the Broadway Initiative, IEMA continues to work with a wide range of stakeholders to develop an ambitious Environment Act as the UK leaves the EU. Our Blueprint for a new Environment Act sets out the governance framework needed to create the conditions for society and the economy to improve the environment in a way that aligns with business investment cycles. It reflects the long-term nature of environmental challenges and their solutions, and the interconnected nature of environmental, social and economic systems.
“The Bill is a one-off opportunity to create a coherent framework”
IEMA will continue to advocate a high level of ambition to government and stakeholders as the Bill enters parliament.
