Q

Will England meet the new mandatory waste reduction target?

A

New legally binding targets to protect the environment, clean up our air and rivers and improve biodiversity were published on 16 December 2022. Provision for these was made under the Environment Act. The Government initially indicated that a resource efficiency target would be included, and environmentalists have been disappointed by its omission.

The full list of mandatory targets is as follows.

  • Halt the decline in species populations by 2030 and then increase populations by at least 10% to exceed current levels by 2042.
