The EU referendum and the UK environment: the future under a ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ Brexit

This report updates a detailed review of the academic evidence on how EU membership has influenced UK policies, systems of decision making and environmental quality that was produced to inform the debates leading up to the referendum.

Now the result is clear, the demand for impartial, expert analysis of its environmental repercussions is even more important.

Will environmental standards rise or fall? Who will make significant decisions outside the EU? And what are the environmental effects likely to be?

The report cuts through the technical complexity and the uncertainty associated with the UK’s withdrawal from the EU by addressing these and other salient questions.
