WWT publishes ‘Rich in Nature’

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust report urges the Government to deliver its promise of a 25-year plan, and also to make itself accountable to Parliament through an annual budget statement on the value of the environment, alongside the value of the economy. In order to fund environmental improvements, the report cites the Norwegian approach, where companies who deplete the nation’s natural wealth have to pay towards renewing it through a ‘sovereign wealth’ fund.
