Statement for the new government

On breaking news of the UK General Election results and on behalf of the members of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering and the Environmental Industries Commission, Chief Executive Officer Kate Jennings said, “We would like to congratulate Sir Kier Starmer and the Labour Party on winning the UK General Election.


In June we shared a 100 day plan for this new chapter of UK government. The plan contains practical steps including the need for an infrastructure and industrial strategy, investment pipeline and effective risk management, to accelerate the development of much needed infrastructure, while placing nature and biodiversity at the heart of all designs. The depletion of nature and the escalating need for climate resilient facilities, buildings and spaces, to sustain our planet and growth, means that this is the time to change how decisions and choices are made.


We look forward to working in partnership with our members and national, devolved and local government stakeholders to advocate and where possible help to take our plan forward.


Our members have many of the answers to the big infrastructure, nature and climate resilience questions; by partnering with government, we aim to help cut through the myriads of demands and focus on the most important measures that will shape thriving and safe communities and deliver sustainable growth and prosperity for the future.”


Kate added, “We have a robust stakeholder engagement programme in place and will be monitoring and reporting on progress at key government milestones during the first 100 days and beyond.”
