Call for industrial strategy to focus on low-carbon economy

The government’s proposed industrial strategy must build on the UK's strengths in low carbon technologies and smart ICT solutions to future-proof the economy and maximise potential, the Aldersgate Group said.

In a report making the case for low-carbon initiatives to be central to the planned industrial strategy, the group said that the international market in low carbon goods and services was currently worth over $5.5tn and that, in the UK, the sector supported almost 250,000 jobs, had a turnover of £46.2bn in 2014, and continued to out-perform growth in the economy as a whole.
