Businesses join forces for meaningful dialogue on sustainable development

Costain and Arriva Trains Wales are due to hold talks with the Welsh Government later today on how to advance the sustainable development agenda.

The two corporations, who have signed up to the Welsh Government's Sustainable Development Charter, will be joined by other charities and public sector bodies to meet with Welsh Communities & Tackling Poverty Minister Jeff Cuthbert.

Other signatories of the Charter include BT, Tata Steel, Marks & Spencer, British Waterways and the National Trust. The main aim of the meeting is to work out how they can all put sustainable development at the heart of their operations.

Later this year the Welsh Government will introduce its Future Generations Bill that will aim to ensure that organisations are working to hand over to the next generation a country that is measurably better in terms of environment, economy, and quality of.

Commenting on the Bill, Cuthbert said it would " help tackle the generational challenges we face in a more joined up way, ensuring Welsh public services work together to achieve a more sustainable and fairer Wales."
