Our Priorities 


Ahead of the UK General Election on 4th July, the Environmental Policy Forum (EPF) is pleased to outline the environmental priorities the next government must implement with urgency during its time in office. 


Our three cross-cutting and seven thematic priorities for the next government are, as follows: 

Cross-cutting priorities 
1.    Improve environmental governance to ensure effective policy delivery.    
2.    Unlock the enormous social, economic and environmental potential of green jobs and skills.     
3.    Take a holistic approach to land use.
Thematic priorities 
4.    Ensure soils are treated as a valuable resource.    
5.    Deliver on our 30x30 commitment to reverse biodiversity decline.     
6.    Transform the UK agricultural and food system, to secure the UK’s access to sustainable sources of food.     
7.    Prioritise water resilience to deliver a ‘Fresh Water Future’.     
8.    Increase ambitions and holistic action for a country with cleaner air.     
9.    Deliver a truly circular economy.     
10.    Unlock investment in low carbon technologies to deliver net zero.     

Each priority contains specific asks for policymakers, which should be achieved through support from business.
