This document sets out our vision of a sustainable Wales.

We launched our new Sustainable Development Scheme, One Wales: One Planet on 22 May 2009 at the Hay Festival.

The Scheme sets out our new vision of a sustainable Wales and the priority we attach to sustainable development. This is a response to the economic and environmental challenges we face and is the only approach that will secure a long term sustainable future for future generations.

We have a legal duty to sustainable development, and it has been at the heart of the Welsh Government since day one. It is our central organising principle.

The Scheme’s vision requires all organisations in Wales to actively commit to sustainable development. One Wales: One Planet provides leadership and direction for suitable development in Wales, and will enable others to develop or renew their own approach to sustainable development.
