This government is committed to being the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than we inherited, as set out in our 25 year Environment Plan.

On infrastructure, we will spend over £1bn per year by 2020 through the Renewable Heat Incentive to support renewable and low-carbon heating.

And, on transport, we are investing £1bn in supporting the take up of low emission vehicles and £48bn on rail infrastructure between 2019 and 2024 to take polluting cars and lorries off our roads.
