Poots’ £2.2m for Environment 27 February 2020

Poots announces £2.2million for environmental projects from carrier bag levy money (via DAERA)

Environment Minister Edwin Poots today announced that 24 environmental projects across NI will share £2.2million of monies generated by the carrier bag levy.

The Environment Fund 2020/21 uses the proceeds of the carrier bag levy (introduced in April 2013) to enable not–for–profit organisations and councils to deliver key environmental outcomes across Northern Ireland.

The Minster made the announcement today at Belfast’s Window on Wildlife, which has received funding that contributes to the allocation of wardens at RSPB reserves across Northern Ireland, who help create the right conditions for birds to nest, breed and raise their young.

The Minister said: “I am pleased to announce this significant funding, derived from the carrier bag levy, which will enable organisations to continue to protect our landscape, habitats and species and promote health and well–being so that we can all enjoy our natural environment.”
