Greener UK has defined a set of ‘Green benchmarks for Brexit’. These are a series of measures to judge the government’s success in its pledge to protect and enhance environmental standards.
Most of the UK’s environmental protections stem from EU law and so could be changed as a result of Brexit. Greener UK has created this Risk Tracker, which we are updating quarterly, to show which policy areas are more secure, and which are most at risk.
Greener UK is a group of 13 major environmental organisations, with a combined public membership of 7.9 million. We are united in the belief that leaving the EU is a pivotal moment to restore and enhance the UK’s environment.
