The Government’s Environmental Audit Committee are holding a Public Inquiry – ‘Aligning the UK’s economic goals with environmental sustainability’ – click here to find out more.
Putting it a bit more simply, they are calling for views on revising the traditional measure of UK economic prosperity to take greater account of natural capital and environmental sustainability. So hopefully that would mean moving away from purely financial growth and benefits, and moving more in the direction of also realising and acting according to the value of nature and the environment.
