The 25 Year Environment Plan is a strategic document with clear aims and ambitions to leave the environment in a better state for the next generation than we inherited. This is underpinned by a series of strategies that already have some specific targets in place, including statutory targets. Those strategies are also updated from time to time, and future updates will help ensure the plan remains relevant.

We have committed to refreshing the 25 Year Environment Plan regularly to ensure that collectively we are focusing on the right priorities, using the latest evidence, and delivering better value for money.
