Environmental Improvement Plan 2023 released

The UK Government has published the Environmental Improvement Plan 2023 (EIP23), the first revision of the 25 Year Environment Plan (25YEP).

The Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) have stated the following about this revised plan:

“Five years ago the 25 Year Environment Plan (25YEP) set out our vision for a quarter-of-a-century of action to help the natural world regain and retain good health. We have published reports on our progress since 25YEP.

The Environmental Improvement Plan (EIP) 2023 for England is our first revision of the 25YEP. It builds on the 25YEP vision with a new plan etting out how we will work with landowners, communities and businesses to deliver each of our goals for improving the environment, matched with interim targets to measure progress. Taking these actions will help us restore nature, reduce environmental pollution, and increase the prosperity of our country.

We’ve also published the Outcome Indicator Framework which describes environmental change that relates to the 10 goals in the 25 Year Environment Plan.”
