25 Year Environment Plan has been released

The Prime Minister has launched the government’s landmark 25 Year Environment Plan, setting out how they will improve the environment over a generation by creating richer habitats for wildlife, improving air and water quality and curbing the scourge of plastic in the world’s oceans. A pledge to eliminate avoidable waste, introduce new safeguards for wildlife and connect more children with nature are among the ambitious plans for a greener future outlined by Prime Minister Theresa May and Environment Secretary Michael Gove today. It details how the government will work with communities and businesses to improve the environment, within a generation, and leave it in a better state than we found it. The Plan sits alongside two other important government strategies: the Industrial Strategy and the Clean Growth strategy. The full report can be found here including annexes.
