Sophie Speaks Out

Hard on the heels of her attack on the M4 relief road, Future Generations Commissioner Sophie Howe has warned the Welsh Government to think more about the long-term consequences of its decisions.  The Government’s Well-being of Wales report admits to rising greenhouse gas emissions and declining biodiversity.  She welcomes an increase in recycling, renewable energy generation, more energy efficient homes, and a narrowing gender pay gap, but calls for more investment in public transport and tacking loneliness.
