Mayor sets up Environment Commission

THE Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, has set up an independent commission to look at environmental issues facing the City.  The Environmental Sustainability commission will review how the City is preparing for when resources will be in scarcer supply and when quality of place will be a key determinant of economic development; identifying how the City's environmental assets can enable the City to compete in a changing global market.  It will be chaired by Professor Nigel Weatherill, Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive of Liverpool John Moores University.  Mayor Anderson said:- "Climate change presents us all with a series of tough challenges and nowhere will be immune as the world's resources get scarcer. We need to examine the likely impact on Liverpool and how we can best prepare for that.  However, while there are huge challenges there is also a great potential for developing green industries in Liverpool and I have asked the commission to look at how the City can best develop low carbon initiatives to give us a competitive advantage in the coming years. This commission will be completely independent. They will get the views of a wide variety of people in both the public and private sector before making recommendations for action."

Professor Nigel Weatherill said:- 'I am delighted to be asked to chair the commission on what is such an important topic. I think this initiative, established by the Mayor, demonstrates his commitment to ensuring that Liverpool is at the forefront of the debate on environmental sustainability and is keen to guarantee that the City is best placed to capitalise on future opportunities'.

Among the issues to be considered by the commission is how best the City can use its environmental assets such as the River Mersey and the City's science and research capability to gain a competitive advantage.

It will also advise on the potential for new industries in the eco and environmental sector and examine how low carbon initiatives can be aligned with the Mayor's agenda for growth.
