Mainstreaming Sustainable Development

New ambitious plans to help build a stronger green government were announced by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman today.

The Mainstreaming Sustainable Development package will guarantee that Government policies have been ‘sustainability-proofed’ – by making sure they help to deliver sustainable economic growth, improve our quality of life and protect our natural environment now and for future generations.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said:

“The Government is determined that as we reduce the deficit, we also rebalance the economy and put it on a greener, more sustainable footing.

“In order to achieve this, we must lead by example. I am pleased to see this document sets out exactly how we can do that and take our place among the greenest governments in the world.”

Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman said:

“Moving to a long-term, green and sustainable economy is essential if we are to rebuild our finances, improve our quality of life and protect our natural environment. Genuine sustainability will never again be an add-on or afterthought. It will be at the heart of everything we do – from making policy to running government buildings or purchasing goods and services.”

Energy and Climate Change Secretary, Chris Huhne said:

“We’re already delivering on the Prime Minister’s promise to slash the Government’s own carbon emissions by 10 per cent in our first year, but we need to go much further beyond that. Only by putting the low carbon agenda at the heart of everything that we do will we convince businesses and householders to do the same.”
