Greening the Economy

Green policies can help to solve fundamental economic challenges facing the UK. There is clear evidence that green investment raises productivity and will lead to high quality jobs in new industries. A green industrial strategy would bring a new sense of purpose and pride to the UK. We identify and recommend how to maximise the economic benefits, particularly so they are experienced fairly by everyone across the country, to reinforce public support for ambitious climate and environmental action.

Why this matters


New jobs that could be created in an expanded UK circular economy


Potential economic stimulus from cutting VAT on housing renovation and repair in the UK


Income generated for every £10,000 invested in peatland restoration
