The purpose of this document is to provide initial guidance on how the Agency will make its contribution to sustainable development. The Agencys principal aim as contained in the Environment Act 1995 is analyzed along with the statutory guidance on this duty that has been received from Ministers. The implications of this aim and guidance for the Agencys functions are explored with reference to the accompanying non-statutory explanatory document. This document is intended as a starting point for sustainable development guidance and is part of a series of specific guidance including those on the Agency's Conservation Duties and Taking Account of Costs and Benefits.
