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.
