As a country, Britain has made significant gains in some important environmental areas, most notably in its carbon emissions reduction commitments; but a prolonged recession and narrowly focused national debate have slowed progress.
In this report, Green Alliance and nine other leading environment organisations set out seven goals for the 2015-2020 parliament for a better environment and the way we live in Britain. The proposals include making an ambitious 2015 global climate change deal a key foreign policy priority; new policies to protect our oceans; more powers to allow communities to shape their local environment; better support for home energy efficiency; and improvements to resource management for a more resilient economy.
