The report on the joint Ministerial and Third Sector Task Force on Climate Change, the Environment and Sustainable Development has just been released and can be downloaded from the third sector homepage on the Defra website.

In the press note Defra’s Third Sector Minister, Huw Irranca Davies said:

This report breaks new ground. It is a genuine effort to join things up better across the third sector and government with four departments, the Charity Commission and 16 third sector representatives all committing to actions. However, we recognise that we have not been able to do full justice to all the aspects of climate change, the environment and sustainable development in this report but the important thing is that we’ve made a very good start.

The other exciting aspect of this report is that two of the government departments involved and the majority the third sector representatives do not have climate change, the environment or sustainable development as their core focus. In this respect, the report helps bring these issues into the mainstream and builds on the decades of work of the environmental third sector who will be a key part of the picture moving forward.

The report will be formally launched this evening (9/3/10).
