Consultation on Securing a Sustainable Future for Wales

3 May 2024

In January, the Welsh Government set forward a White Paper intended to strengthen environmental governance in Wales.

This White Paper sets out proposals for a Bill to cover three key areas and invites views from interested parties:

  1. Embedding environmental principles into Welsh law; 
  2. Environmental Governance, including the establishment of an environmental governance body for Wales; and
  3. A statutory targets framework to protect and restore biodiversity in Wales

Confor prepared an industry response in collaboration with members in Wales. This full document is available below.

We welcomed considerations towards sustainable development and the foundation of a new governance body.
