Industrial policy

A modern policy for the UK
Industrial policy
The idea of an active industrial policy for the UK is gaining ground once more and Green Alliance is exploring what a modern industrial policy should look like.

Policy makers need to avoid the mistakes of the past, where attempts to ‘pick winners’ often ended in failure. The emphasis is now more on the role of the government as an enabler, bringing  parties together to identify the problems which the government can solve.

The emerging green economy is a sector that could particularly benefit from an industrial policy to stimulate investment and well targeted innovation.
Our work on the circular economy has identified how government can help to foster the collaboration between sectors and through the supply chain which is needed to increase UK resource productivity.
