Under the Public Sector Equality Duty of the Equality Act 2010, Defra has a duty to show how it will eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation. We will show how to form good relations between groups of people regardless of their age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, ethnicity, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation or marriage and civil partnership status.
Defra is committed to review objectives regularly to ensure they are relevant and meet changing business and customer needs.
