Natural Resources Wales has taken over the functions of the Countryside Council for Wales, Environment Agency Wales and Forestry Commission Wales, as well as some functions of Welsh Government.
We will work for communities in Wales to make sure people and their homes are protected from environmental incidents like flooding and pollution. We will provide opportunities for people to learn, use and benefit from Wales’ natural resources.
We will work for Wales’ economy and enable the sustainable use of natural resources to support jobs & enterprise. We will help businesses and developers to understand and consider environmental impacts when they make important decisions.
We will work to maintain and improve the quality of the environment for everyone. We will help make the environment and natural resources more resilient to climate change and other pressures.
We will use our knowledge, and learn from the knowledge of others, to make Natural Resources Wales an efficient, effective and capable organisation for the people and environment of Wales.
