The UK’s environment has benefited significantly from membership of the EU and we believe that Britain should remain inside it.

Last month the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee stated that membership of the EU had improved the UK’s approach to environmental protection, and had ensured it was better protected for it. ecosurety welcomes and supports this conclusion.

We believe that reductions in pollution, protection of wildlife, and improvements in recycling would not have happened without the UK becoming a member. This latest report spells out the main benefits of belonging to the EU, and confirms ecosurety’s view that the UK should remain inside.

It’s abundantly clear the UK’s environmental progress would have not have been as impressive had it not been under the watchful eye of the EU. All of our 1,000-plus members are fully embedded in, and are implementing, recycling guidance based on EU Directives. 

Every time a UK producer files their annual obligations, they are individually working towards a cleaner, more sustainable UK, and that has to be applauded.
