This briefing note examines Labour’s record on environmental policy since 1997. It begins in section 2 with a relatively broad overview of the environmental record, looking at key outcomes on environmental taxes, expenditures and emissions. Section 3 then looks in detail at policy developments and outcomes in three areas: energy, transport and waste management. Section 4 assesses the coherency of current environmental policy and section 5 concludes.
