The Welsh economy will not thrive without a greater commitment to green growth, according to the minister for natural resources and food, Alun Davies

His comments accompanied the issue of a new policy statement on resources, Shaping a more prosperous and resilient future.

It details how his department will be working to deliver the Welsh government’s sustainability policies.

The department aims to publish a green growth delivery plan early next year and work with Natural Resources Wales to develop a website to enable organisations to share environmental data by the end of 2014.

“The sustainable management of our natural resources is critical to the future success of our economy and critical in creating a future for all of our communities,” said Davis. “It is also critical to this government’s ambition to drive up local environment quality and promote sustainable growth.”
