Christopher Badger’s 2018 predictions – listen from 0.42 mins
Mark Davies reminds us of Chris Badger’s predictions for top environmental law news in 2018 and evaluates their progress during 2018. He discusses some of the action taken in 2018 to tackle single-use plastics, such as the ban on microbeads coming into force and the various consultations run by government on how to target single-use plastics.
Mark also considers Chris’ prediction that work on trees would dominate 2018, given the pledge made by government to plant 50 million trees in the Northern Forest in 2018. Mark concludes that progress in this area hasn’t been as impressive as the momentum being gained on single-use plastics.
