Event description

Description

Join your upcoming Yorkshire & Humber regional event to explore the significant challenges and opportunities the process of leaving the EU and transposing EU law into UK law offers for the environment and economy.

The immediate challenge is to fully transpose the European Union “environmental acquis” into UK law to ensure continued environmental protection and provide certainty to business. Once the UK has left the EU, we’ll have an unprecedented opportunity to reshape the policy landscape and significantly improve the environment on which we and future generations will depend, and to do so in ways that work radically better for business competitiveness and the economy.

Join us to explore the set of Core Principles IEMA has created as a touchstone to guide the UK’s transposition of the European Union “environmental acquis” through the Great Repeal Bill. They will also aid the subsequent development and implementation of environmental policy and legislation once the UK has left the EU.

In this event Martin Baxter, IEMA Chief Policy Advisor will outline the key messages from IEMA’s recent position statement ‘Core Principles for the Environment - Brexit and Beyond’. Join Martin and explore the latest developments in the transposition; looking beyond Brexit to the 25yr Environment Plan, Carbon Emissions Reduction Plan and 5th Carbon Budget, and the UK’s industrial strategy. The event will begin with networking from 5.30pm, with presentations due to start at 6pm.

If you’re looking to gain insight into the upcoming UK policy changes and how the profession views them, this event is perfect for you. Register now and secure your place.
