UK Heading Toward a Green Brexit

The Government has set out a plan to ensure the UK undergoes a ‘green’ Brexit.

An independent watchdog will be set up says Environment Secretary Michael Gove, which will enforce set standards and hold public bodies to account in regard to environmental legislation once the UK leaves the EU.

Whilst a member of the EU, any decision made by the UK government in relation to emissions and pollution are analysed and policed by the European Commission to ensure no legal issues arise.

After Brexit, the UK would be free to implement decisions by itself which is why Mr Gove believes an independent body is required to act as a safeguard against any wrong moves.

Consultations on the new approach will begin in early 2018, with discussions centred around the new bodies’ powers, along with whether the body will cover the whole of the UK or England independently.

Mr Gove stated: “We will deliver a green Brexit, where environmental standards are not only maintained but are enhanced.”

“Today we are setting out our plans to ensure the powerful are held to account.”

“We will consult on creating an independent body – encouraging transparency and preventing careless or irresponsible behaviour damaging our natural environment.”
