IEMA: Environment Bill aims to re-set relationship with society and the economy

Government has today published an ambitious Environment Bill which sets out a landmark legislative framework to tackle the environment and climate emergency.

At the centre of the Bill is an environmental governance framework which sets a process for setting legally-binding targets to tackle air pollution, waste, biodiversity loss and water resources protection; puts Defra’s 25yr Environment Plan on a statutory footing; sets out core environmental principles for policy-making; and creates a new Office for Environmental Protection to monitor progress and ensure public authorities comply with climate and environmental laws.
