Energy UK comments on the Environment Bill
Further to the Environment Bill which was published today please see below a comment from Lawrence Slade (Chief Executive, Energy UK):
“We welcome the publication of the Environment Bill and this landmark legislation to sustainably improve our environment for future generations. We support its binding targets to address air and water quality, biodiversity and management of our water resources.
“The energy sector stands ready to lead further progress in decarbonisation which delivers benefits not only for the environment but also the wider economy, while also reducing costs for customers.
“We look forward to working with government and other key stakeholders through the passage of this Bill to ensure it is fit for purpose to deliver environmental improvement, and to achieve the same political robustness as the ground-breaking Climate Change Act 2008.”
