European Union asks Britain to not lower environmental standards after Brexit

European Union asks Britain to not lower environmental standards after Brexit

The study outlines that Brexit presents opportunities for rule changes in sectors such as agriculture, shipping and tourism that could benefit the United Kingdom economy, but these opportunities for divergence are vastly outweighed by the costs of deviating from rules necessary to ensure smooth access to the European Union market.

"As the only part of the United Kingdom which shares a land border with an EU Member State, Northern Ireland businesses rely on continued regulatory convergence to support all-island operations and supply chains".

Moreover, full participation in the EU's Emissions Trading System (ETS) should be maintained until the end of 2020 "with at least equivalence thereafter" in order to help the UK's efforts to decarbonise, the CBI said. "Continued regulatory alignment will also be required to support the all-island Single Electricity Market - a key priority for local firms".

The financial services sector will be much better off if the United Kingdom replicates European Union regulation after Brexit, according to the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).

The report covers 23 sectors including life sciences and creative industries, in which the East of England is said to have particular strength.

Fairbairn said: "This report comes from the heart of British business".

"The experience-based evidence of companies across the country will be essential in the months ahead, as it is critical that negotiators understand the complexity of rules and the effects even small changes can have".

A Government spokesman said: "We want the broadest and deepest possible partnership - covering more sectors and co-operating more fully than any Free Trade Agreement anywhere in the world today". Deviation from rules in one sector will have a knock-on effect on businesses in others, and divergence from rules in one part of a production process will have consequences for market access throughout entire supply chains.

David Sproul, senior partner and chief executive of Deloitte for north west Europe, said: "Weak UK demand is cited as the top concern, though there is likely to be a relationship between the two".

The Department for Exiting the European Union was considering BusinessGreen's request for comment at the time of going to press.
