Housing, Transport & Environment

A sustainable Wales needs enough decent homes, accessible transport and minimal waste to increase well-being and reduce carbon emissions.


Why it matters

Everyone is at risk of the effects of climate change but people on low incomes face a triple injustice – they produce the least emissions because they have poorer housing and travel less yet they pay more for services and have fewer benefits from many government policies.

What we are doing

We are developing proposals for further work on environmental justice.

Better Bus Services

Buses are a lifeline for people on low incomes, young and older people, and disabled people. Yet services are shrinking and prices rising. Our work has identified practical ways to improve services for:

  • older people
  • long-distances
  • across Wales.
