A Green Future: ADEPT's initial response to the 25 Year Environment Plan

11 January 2018

ADEPT President Simon Neilson said: “ADEPT welcomes the Prime Minister’s commitment to protecting and improving the environment. She is saying all the right things, many of which have been highlighted by ADEPT. We are pleased that the Government is recognising the links between the Industrial Strategy, the environment and the economy, and how complementary approaches are intrinsic to future-proofing our economy alongside health and well-being.”
 
“However, the Plan is a collection of policy statements when what is needed is urgency, detail and the political commitment that puts in place the right regulatory and legislative frameworks to ensure these policies are delivered.
 
“As Place Directors, ADEPT members are already working to ensure we leave the best environmental legacy we possibly can. Today’s announcement has the potential to strengthen this and it is important that we now work with government to ensure their ambition can be fulfilled”
