After a long game of ping pong between the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the Environment Act 2021 achieved Royal Assent in November 2021. The act seeks to replace some of the environmental protection previously afforded under EU law and makes provision for improving air quality, enhancing biodiversity, reducing waste and moving to a circular economy. The proposed changes will be backed by legally binding targets and will be enforced by the new Office for Environmental Protection.
In this webinar, RSK Biocensus Managing Director Tim Hounsome will give an overview of the provisions of the act with respect to the natural environment and will provide insights on how it may affect developers and environmental consultants.
