Beccy Speight, RSPB Chief Executive, said:
This Treasury-commissioned review is an incredibly important moment that should trigger a sea-change in attitude towards the positive role nature plays underpinning our prosperity. The review demonstrates how our economies, livelihoods and well-being fundamentally depend on protecting and enhancing nature. But right now, we aren’t protecting our precious natural wealth and assets.
As we look ahead to recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic we should refocus our efforts towards a genuinely green renewal. To help revive our world, all four governments of the UK must match attitude with action; investing in nature’s recovery and putting it at the heart of all economic decisions. It is no longer acceptable for our environment to be the afterthought.
