Here's our response to Cameron’s speech on scrapping environmental guidance

UK-GBC responds to Cameron’s speech on scrapping environmental guidance Date released: 27 Jan 2014 The UK Green Building Council has responded to a speech Prime Minister David Cameron will give today promising to scrap environmental guidance. In the speech, Mr Cameron will announce plans to slash 80,000 pages of environmental guidance by March 2015, which he claims will save businesses around £100 million a year. Paul King, Chief Executive at the UK Green Building Council, said: “The Prime Minister’s boasts of ‘slashing 80,000 pages’ of environmental guidance is utterly reprehensible. “It is the same poisonous political rhetoric from Number 10, devaluing environmental regulation in a slash and burn manner. These words are not only damaging and irresponsible, but misrepresent the wishes of so many modern businesses, both large and small.” To view the speech click here .
