Environment Act

In January 2020 the Government reintroduced an Environment Act for England, to replace the EU’s nature laws and “green watchdog” role, and to help nature to recover. The Act received Royal Assent in Autumn 2021.

Between 2019 and 2021, Link campaigned for an Enviroment Bill capable to addressing the scale of nature's decline. 

A full set of briefings on the Act, produced by Link with Greener UK, can be found here. A selection of Link policy papers connected to the Bill can be accessed below.
