Download: Environment Bill summary

The Environment Bill, which aims to tackle climate change and protect and restore the natural environment, was initially brought before the House of Commons in October but was delayed due to the General Election and subsequent EU withdrawal negotiations.

It returned to Parliament on 30 January, and the re-introduced version features two new commitments from the October readings, namely:

• A ban on exporting plastic to developing countries;
• A two-yearly review of significant developments in international legislation on the environment.

Environment Secretary Theresa Villiers has said the Bill “sets a gold standard for improving air quality, protecting nature, increasing recycling and cutting down on plastic waste.”

The frameworks detailed in the Bill replace the UK’s current obligations under EU law.
