The Government has set out its commitment to space sustainability in the National Space Strategy, which commits to ensuring space remains safe, secure and sustainable.

We are already delivering that commitment - on 23 June we announced the first ever Plan for Space Sustainability. This encompasses a range of ambitious measures that show UK leadership to advance the sustainable future of space, including:

- Demonstrating continued regulatory leadership.

- Demonstrating UK global leadership.

- Leadership on meeting sustainability standards through the development of an industry-led standard for space sustainability.

- Continuing to enhance national and global capacity.
