31st July 2015
The new Environmental Audit Committee has launched its first inquiry of the parliament and is calling for evidence on the government’s approach to sustainable development.
Evidence received for this inquiry will feed into the Committees work over the course of this Parliament. Responses are invited on the following questions:
• What key policies are needed over the course of this Parliament to adequately protect the environment, promote growth in the low carbon sector and improve wellbeing?
• Does the Government’s current fiscal and legislative agenda accord with the action required and, if not, why not and where might it be improved?
• Where should responsibility lie in Government for ensuring the sustainable development approach is adopted by all Government departments?
• What metrics could the Committee use to monitor the Government’s performance on sustainable development over the course of the Parliament?
The deadline for submissions is 2 September 2015. You can send a written submission on the inquiry page
