Updates from the Group
Following the Group’s huge success in contributing to the decision by the EU not to reopen the Directives, work has come to an end. However, it remains the case that the Directives need to be properly implemented across the UK, and all relevant environmental laws must be effectively transferred into UK law during the Brexit process. This will be taken forward by the newly formed Environment Links UK Brexit Nature Coalition.
The Environment Links UK Brexit Nature Coalition wrote to the Commissioner, Frans Timmermans, in February 2017, who, in response, warmly welcomed our offer to provide expertise, knowledge and time in delivering the Commission’s newly adopted Action Plan for nature, people and the economy. The Action Plan, introduced in June 2017, is aimed at improving implementation of the nature directives and boost their contribution towards reaching the EU's biodiversity targets for 2020.
