Greening the Economy

Green policies can help to solve fundamental economic challenges facing the UK. There is clear evidence that green investments can raise productivity and lead to high quality jobs in new industries, boosting wages. A green industrial strategy would bring a new sense of purpose and pride to the UK economy. We identify and promote policy that can maximise the economic benefits and spread them fairly across the country, to increase public support for climate and environmental action.
