John Griffiths, Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development

I will be launching the Green Paper ‘Sustaining A Living Wales’ for public consultation at Tata Steel, Port Talbot at 10.00am on 30th January 2012. The consultation period will  close on 31st May 2012.  

‘Sustaining a Living Wales’ seeks views on a fresh approach to the management and regulation of the environment in Wales.  Adopting an ecosystem approach to the management of our natural resources will mean considering and regulating the environment as a whole rather than dealing with individual aspects of it separately.  It  also considers the benefits that better management of the environment can bring - for people, for jobs and for health  now and for the future.
