25 Year Environment Plan

'A Green Future: Our 25 Year Plan to Improve the Environment', sets out what we will do to improve the environment, within a generation.



Our environment plan sets out our goals for improving the environment, within a generation, and leaving it in a better state than we found it. It details how we in government will work with communities and businesses to do this. It sets out what we will be doing over the next 25 years.

The Plan sits alongside two other important government strategies: our Industrial Strategy and our Clean Growth strategy.

Alongside the plan, we’ve also published 3 detailed, technical annexes.
