The Rivers Trust urges new PM to seize the economic opportunities in a blue-green recovery

The Rivers Trust’s CEO has urged new Prime Minister Liz Truss to seize the huge economic opportunities from restoring the natural environment and safeguarding the nation’s water supplies for the future.

Mark Lloyd warned the new Prime Minister against a deregulatory agenda, saying that it could unpick important environmental protections, and encouraged her instead to focus on bringing together a wide range of organisations to develop collaborative solutions to the urgent biodiversity, climate and water crises.

Mark Lloyd said:

“We want the new PM to recognise that, despite the urgent cost of living issues she faces, she will be remembered in the long term for whether or not she rises to face the big issues of the day and of our generation – the climate and biodiversity crises. She will be judged on whether she has the foresight and skill to address these complex problems and shift the government towards taking a lead on these with proper strategic planning, rather than knee-jerk reactions to short term crises.”
