The government has been criticised by the environmental audit committee (EAC) for failing to set out a clear plan to deliver the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the UK.
The EAC published a report on Wednesday 26 April, in which it said that the government had done little to promote the goals – which include delivering clean and affordable energy, and tackling climate change – leading to low awareness. Despite this, some UK businesses were found to be embracing the goals and the EAC called on the government to support these firms and incentivise, or require, others to do likewise.
EAC Chair Mary Creagh said: “As the UK leaves the EU, the government has a once in a generation opportunity to use the Global Goals to forge a cross-party consensus on sustainable development in the UK.”
