This Act is about improving the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales.

The sustainable development principle, as set out in the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act, is the basis upon which our green growth agenda is being developed.

Green growth in Wales is about fostering economic growth, development and social equity while ensuring that our natural assets can continue to provide the resources and environmental services where our well-being is concerned. 

We are stimulating investment and innovation, which will support sustained growth and give rise to new economic opportunities. We want to develop our workforce and building skills, and fairly distribute the proceeds of growth through jobs.

We are encouraging economic growth and development that tackles poverty whilst trying to prevent costly climate change and unsustainable natural resource use.
