Green conservatism: protecting the environment through open markets



27 September, 2013


How can we ensure real competition in resource markets, and avoid concentrated market power? How can we truly encourage enterprise and open up markets to communities, citizens and other new entrants to enable diverse ownership? And how does this play out in sectors such as energy, carbon trading, food, waste, housing and transport?

This is the last of three contributor pamphlets under our Green Roots programme, sets out to answer these crucial questions. Bringing together contributions from conservative thinkers and independent experts it looks at how the market can deliver solutions to our resource and environmental constraints.

We would like to thank the Ashden Trust, the European Climate Foundation and the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust for supporting the Green Roots programme.
