Labour says it will embrace the circular economy


The circular economy will be embraced by a Labour government, according to its Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Speaking at Labour’s annual conference in Liverpool this week, Rachel Maskell criticised the Government for having no understanding of the capacity needed to renegotiate hundreds of environmental regulations following the Brexit vote.


She added: “Unlike the Government, Labour will embrace the circular economy – reducing our consumption, recycling and generating energy from our waste, not turning it over to landfill.

“We all have our part to play in Labour’s recycling revolution.”
