UK Government sets out Environmental Targets
New legally binding environmental targets have been announced.
[Original source: CIEEM)
- Halt the decline in species populations by 2030, and, by 2042, increase populations by at least 10%
- Restore precious water bodies to their natural state by cracking down on harmful pollution from sewers and abandoned mines as well as improving water usage in households
- Deliver our net zero ambitions and boost nature recovery by increasing tree and woodland cover to 16.5% of the total land area in England by 2050
- Halve the waste per person that is sent to residual treatment by 2042
- Cut exposure to the most harmful air pollutant to human health – PM2.5
- Restore 70% of designated features in our Marine Protected Areas to a favourable condition by 2042, with the rest in a recovering condition
