Britain needs to take advantage of green economy!

Businesses in parts of the country are trying to find ways they can exploit economic opportunities presented by the country becoming more environmentally friendly – for example, through the renewable energy sector or through work to make businesses more energy efficient.

Such opportunities in their entirety, called the “green economy”, are thought to be worth some £112bn to the UK, with that figure expected to jump by 45 per cent in the next two years.

Speaking in the House of Commons yesterday Waveney MP Peter Aldous said: “Realising the full potential of the green economy is vitally important to securing the economic recovery and creating new jobs.

“The green economy is performing particularly well at present and it is important that the UK takes full advantage of this; last year the low carbon goods and services market grew by four per cent and investment in renewable energy around the world reached record levels.”
