Energy & Wild Land Policy

Published: 28th June 2015

The John Muir Trust will apply this Policy when responding to strategic policy issues (adopted Sept 2013)

The adverse impact of energy developments on the landscape and ecological health of the UK’s last wild land is to such an extent that many core areas of wild land are at imminent risk of disappearing. This means it is vital that decisions on energy are evidence-based and that they use a holistic approach - encompassing social and environmental, as well as economic, factors considering local, national and international levels.
