The government is trying to weaken our environmental standards after Brexit - risking our wildlife, beaches, and the air we breathe.
Environment Minister Michael Gove and Theresa May promised a "world-leading" green watchdog, with the teeth to enforce environmental protections after Brexit. But the plan has been watered down so much that it is starting to look more poodle than bulldog.

Without the power it needs, the watchdog won’t be able to hold the government to account if it fails to deliver - and it's our environment that will suffer.

Gove and Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond, are the key decision makers here. Make sure they deliver a green Brexit - sign the petition.

Our environment is too important to leave to politics.


To: Environment Secretary Michael Gove and Chancellor Philip Hammond

"Please keep your promise - give us a watchdog that works!"

A viable environmental watchdog must:

  • Have the duty to review and investigate public bodies to check they’re following environmental laws correctly
  • Have the power to enforce and uphold the law
  • Allow citizens and organisations to initiate complaints
  • Be transparent.
