Frontier (Europe) has today published a new Brexit bulletin ‘New ministry, same questions?’, which explores the post-Brexit issues in climate change policy. Britain’s vote to leave the European Union was bound to increase the cloud of concerns over energy policy, made cloudier still by the demise of the Department for Energy and Climate Change. Neither, however, change the basic framework for climate change policy, fully embedded in UK law, or fundamentally alter the policy choices to be made within it.
The bulletin suggests that a push on energy efficiency might help steady nerves, and provide a solution to a number of issues facing the new Secretary of State – if he can find a way to deliver it effectively.
Frontier (Europe) regularly advises public and private sector organisations on climate change adaptation policies and measures.
