WWF UK Reacts to Appointment of Andrea Leadsom



David Nussbaum, Chief Executive of WWF-UK, has responded to the appointment of Andrea Leadsom as Secretary of State for the Environment.

He said:

“Now more than ever the Secretary of State for the Environment has a huge and vital role to play in deciding the future of our country. Key to this ambition will be to develop a 25 year plan for the environment which was also a manifesto commitment; a generational commitment by our country that we will safeguard nature and wildlife, both at home or overseas. Andrea Leadsom should set out the Government’s ambition for world-leading environmental policy, maintaining but also improving on our existing framework of laws, whether national, European or international.”
