Sustainable Development aims to enable all people to satisfy their basic needs and enjoy a better quality of life without compromising the quality of life of future generations. It is a key government policy at both national and regional level and is an issue that affects every business, organisation and individual.
More information on the national picture
GO-East works particularly closely with the East of
England Regional Assembly and the East of England Development Agency to
encourage sustainable development to be incorporated in regional strategies
and implementation plans. We also have a place on Sustainability
East, the region's independent champion body for Sustainable
Development. Sustainability East sponsored the development of an
interactive on-line toolkit, to assist in the sustainability appraisal of
regional and sub-regional strategies, action plans and projects.
GO-East was on the steering group which produced the
latest Integrated Sustainability Framework, whose principles have been
incorporated into subsequent key regional strategies and plans.
We provide support to Sustainable Built Environment
East, the region's think tank for sustainable growth, which has high level
representation from right across the construction sector.
