NGO concern as UK Government releases its consultation on biodiversity offsetting

This press release was launched on the day the UK Government published a long-awaited green paper on its proposed plans to implement biodiversity offsetting. The UK has been trialling biodiversity offsetting through a series of pilots since last year, but so far they have been an abject failure - the press release explains why.
