A Plan to Reshape our Economy: Pledge #1030 October 2020
Lockdown and the pandemic have temporarily changed the relationship between the economy and the environment. As we stimulate new economic activity, we must ensure this is more beneficial and less harmful to the planet. Green infrastructure provides savings of up to £170m per year through opportunities for physical exercise which decreases sickness leave and premature mortality.
Enhance our landscapes and provide more and accessible green spaces.
- Expand and restore green spaces
- Pilot innovative approaches in valuing the importance of our natural capital
- Support land based industries to increase their energy and resource efficiency
Capitalise on our high quality landscapes and green spaces.
Work to deliver this pledge has already begun. In their response to the pandemic, investment decisions and plans for the future, places, businesses, and organisations across the region are already reshaping towards a greener, fairer, stronger future. Check out the case studies below and on our website.
