“We warmly welcome the announcement of a landmark Environment Bill in the Government’s forthcoming legislative programme.This is an important opportunity to put sustainability at the heart of the UK’s economic model.

We urgently need a comprehensive legal framework to give the long-term certainty needed to tackle the significant environmental challenges we face and welcome the commitment to set legally binding targets to address air pollution, plastic waste, biodiversity loss and to protect our precious water resources.We look forward to reviewing the Bill in detail, with a view to ensuring the proposals match the ambition needed to create a world-leading environmental constitution.”
