A Sustainable Environment

Policy Overview

Let’s Protect Our Green and Pleasant Land

Our land, our waters and our air are Northern Ireland’s natural wealth. They change as we grow as a population and an economy, but how we change them and what we put in them is a choice.

The choices we make will shape what we hand over to the next generation in Northern Ireland. In Northern Ireland’s new century, the DUP is committed to ensuring our natural wealth is passed on to the next generation in a better state than we found it.

The first step will be the 2021 plan – An Environmental Strategy for the first 30 years of Northern Ireland’s new century. This plan will include themes such as:

  • Biodiversity.
  • Peatland Preservation and Restoration and management of upland resources.
  • Waste Wealth – developing the circular economy.

This strategy must address our growing population and the need to be economically successful to ensure we have the resources to protect our natural wealth.
