Industry groups working with Government to build environmental policy framework

The Broadway Initiative is a consortium made up of a range of business, environmental, academic and professional groups to publish a shared view of how the Government’s planned Environmental Bill can ‘put sustainability at the heart of our economic model’.

 

CLA president Tim Breitmeyer said the Initiative’s emphasis on creating long-term collaborative policymaking would transcend political cycles, policy areas and ‘the traditional fault lines of competing interests’.

 

The aim is to advise Government on how to enable all parts of society to play their part in achieving long-term objectives for the environment, while meeting society’s needs for food, infrastructure, energy, and products and services.

Chancellor Philip Hammond said: “Well-designed environmental standards are vital to sustainable economic growth and the well-being of people and our planet.

 

“That is why I am pleased to be meeting with non-governmental organisations and industry leaders to work together to build sustainability into the heart of our economic model.

 

“We need to work with businesses to support jobs and growth in the clean economy as we continue to lead the world in tackling climate change.”

 

As well as the CLA, signatories include the National Trust, Chamber of British Industry, Federation for Small Businesses, Wildlife Trusts and Water UK.
