Video: interview with Matthew Spencer of the Green Alliance

The new Tory government brings with it substantial policy differences compared to the coalition which the environmental sector must embrace, explains Spencer.

Speaking at the recent EIC annual conference, chair of the Green Alliance Matthew Spencer highlighted to ACOonAir a number of key policy differences and concerns that the sector should be aware of.

"There are a mnumber of of concerns that I have, one being that the egovernment appears to be taking more of a compliance approach to the environment and doing the minimum needed to meet their legal obligations rather than having a more dynamic entrepreneurial approach," he said. "I hope we can change that but there is definitely a compliance mentality."

"Second is that there has been some notable incoherence particulary around low carbin policy," he added.
