Sustainable development

Sustainable Development is on the Government's agenda for the long-term. Although climate change is the most serious global environmental threat, promoting new, modern, sustainable ways of living, working, producing and travelling also stand to achieve wider benefits to human health and well-being (taken from Securing the Future - delivering UK sustainable development strategy). This is in accordance with the Department's commitment to sustainable development and in line with the principles of the White Paper Our health, our care, our say. The key is to embrace the concept and take this forward with renewed vigour to realise the benefits from social reform, improved environmental performance and realise the economic rewards necessary to maintain the impetus.
