Environment Act becomes law

Legislation that will protect and enhance our environment for future generations has now passed into UK law. The Act seeks to clean up the country’s air, restore natural habitats, increase biodiversity, reduce waste and make better use of our resources.

The Office for Environmental Protection was set up in an interim, non-statutory form in July, providing independent oversight of the Government’s environmental progress and accelerating the foundation of the full body. The OEP will formally commence its statutory functions shortly.
