Dear Environment and Sustainability Committee,


I support the campaign for a strong Well-being of Future Generations Bill. I would like to see the Bill strengthened by:


• Adding in targets to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases • Including a strong duty on public bodies to aim to achieve sustainable development in everything they do • Adding a clear definition of sustainable development • Properly considering the impact Wales has on people and the environment overseas • Boosting the powers of the Commissioner and making the role accountable to Assembly Members rather than Welsh Ministers


Public bodies should be required to evidence how sustainability has been considered in decision making as is already required for equalities under the 2010 Equality Act and the Welsh Specific Duties (Equality Impact Assessment) and may well be required for the Welsh language under the Welsh Language Measure 2011.

A clear definition of SD would help people focus at all levels.


Please consider my views as you scrutinise the legislation over the coming weeks.


Yours sincerely


Llio elgar
