Brexit – a quick reminder and the Environment Act
Within this session, delegates will be reminded of the changes made to our regulatory landscape since Brexit, before we turn our attention to the Environment Act.
The Environment Act became law in 2021, and acts as the UK’s new framework of environmental protection. When the UK left the EU, rules on environmental protection that originally came from Brussels were at risk. The Environment Act is intended to plug that gap.
During the session, we’ll discuss what the Environment Act covers, and get the latest information on its implementation and progress.
