Wildlife and Countryside Link have (today) launched the Nature Check report. Nature Check assesses the Government’s progress on the 16 commitments it has made to the natural environment using a traffic light rating system. It highlights some of the most controversial environmental issues of the year – including the proposed reform of the planning system, the planned badger cull and the public debate on the future of the public forest estate - and gives an honest assessment of progress.

The Wildlife Trusts are part of Wildlife and Countryside Link, a consortium of NGOs, who work together to influence environmental policy.

Just two of the commitments have been fully met, and have been given a green seal of approval. Seven have received an amber rating, meaning not enough progress has been made, and a further seven have been given the red card.

This is disappointing progress for what has been touted as the 'greenest Government ever', but now there is a baseline against which their future progress can be judged.
