Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum
The future for environmental standards in the UK and implementing the Office for Environmental Protection

Wed 13th January 2021 - Wed 13th January 2021, Online

The agenda:

  • The future for environmental regulation
  • The Environment Bill and creating the OEP – roles, scope of powers and underpinning independence
    • Ambitious environmental standards – how they can be designed and enforced
    • Priorities for the OEP – monitoring progress, enforcement powers, and maintaining independence from Government
    • Realising the ambition of the Environment Bill – the OEP remit, coordination with wider policy and standards, and holding departments to account
  • Latest thinking on enhancing environmental standards and building back greener – protection priorities and scope, conservation and restoration progress, and prospect for green job creation
  • Opportunities for the UK to lead internationally, promote standards, and lead by example on the framework for environmental stewardship
  • Setting standards for the long term – decarbonisation, adapting to climate threats, and conserving biodiversity, ecosystem services and public goods
  • Regulatory change for enhanced environmental protection, and implementing policy to support a strong OEP
