During the news briefing from Downing Street this afternoon, the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg revealed how they plan to make their "new kind of government" work. Specific to the environmental profession, the Prime Minister said that the two parties were, together, "passionate about building a green economy".
While the mechanics of the coalition government are being finalised, the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats have released their top-line Coalition Agreement, outlining plans for a green deal for energy efficiency investment, a floor price for carbon, and a commitment to reduce central government carbon emission by 10 per cent within 12 months. The Conservative/Lib Dem policies on nuclear power are highlighted as an area of difference between the parties, but an outline process for determining Government policy in this area is sketched out. This full agreement is available from here.
