Green Brexit: One Year Countdown

  • Rebecca Pow MP Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to the Ministers in Defra
  • Stephen Gethins MP SNP Foreign Affairs and Europe Spokesperson
  • Paul McNamee Head of Politics, Green Alliance
  • Prof. Charlotte Burns University of Sheffield & lead researcher on Brexit and Environment

A joint event by the APPGs on Climate Change and Sustainable Resources

Brexit is a source of considerable uncertainty for the environment, energy and climate change sectors. A year after the UK Government triggered Article 50 – and with one year to go until the UK formally leaves the EU – now is an opportune moment to reflect upon the achievements and failures of the past 12 months, and to renew our ambitions towards working to achieve a green Brexit. Key questions for discussion at this event include, among others:

  • What progress has been achieved in ensuring that Brexit poses no threat to the maintenance and improvement of the UK’s environmental protections and standards?
  • What more is there that the UK Government and Parliament must do to achieve a green Brexit in the little time that remains until we leave the EU?
  • As we move towards the later stages of the Brexit process, both in negotiations with the EU and with legislation in Parliament, what can the sustainability community, policymakers and Parliamentarians do to secure a sustainable Brexit?
