Greener UK acknowledges the severity of the Covid-19 crisis and the requirement for government to focus its resources on tackling this public health emergency.
As a coalition we remain dedicated to our environmental aims and while the Environment, Agriculture and Fisheries Bills are temporarily paused, we continue to engage constructively with our contacts in government and Parliament, including through the new virtual ways of working.
The UK-EU negotiation rounds were temporarily put on hold. Greener UK continues to monitor UK-EU engagement and to assess the progress made on trade and fisheries negotiations, so that we can ensure that the UK environment is protected beyond the transition period.
The pandemic puts many organisations in the environmental sector at risk. Greener UK and Wildlife and Countryside Link are working together to make representations to government for short-term and long-term support for the sector.
We send our thoughts and strength to those fighting against coronavirus, whether on the front line, in government or at home.
