UK Government Launches 25-Year Environment Plan


In 2018 the UK government released “A Green Future: Our 25 Year Plan to Improve the Environment” – its long-term management strategy for the environment.

As part of this, many projects have been launched, including the Darwin Initiative in May 2019 which aims to support businesses that are “conserving some of the world’s iconic and endangered species and landscapes, which benefits us all”.


25-Year Environment Plan

The plan aims to tackle plastic waste, create new habitats for endangered species, and encourage schools to become nature-friendly.

Environmental organisations such as WWF are supportive of the plan and encourage businesses to work with the government to tackle growing plastic waste, dirty air and climate change.

“Through collaboration of government, business and individuals, we can lead the way in protecting our natural capital, and change the way we perceive nature, recognising it is a fundamental underpinning to our society and economy.”


Sustainable Supply Chain

With threat comes opportunity and the 25-year plan will create many environmental tenders.

In addition, it is clear that the UK government wants to leave a lighter footprint on the global environment, and suppliers should be considering this when bidding for government contracts in the future.

The government’s “A Green Future: Our 25 Year Plan to Improve the Environment” document states that it will work “in partnership with industry to explore the possibility of developing additional tools that support businesses to identify sustainable supply chains.”
