UK launches Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy
A blueprint to deliver the world’s first low-carbon industrial sector and over £1bn to cut emissions from industry, schools and hospitals has been announced by the Business and Energy Secretary today. (17/3/21).
The new Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy sets out the government’s vision for building a competitive, greener future for the manufacturing and construction sector. Part of the government’s path to net zero by 2050, ministers claim the measures will create and support 80,000 UK jobs over the next 30 years whilst cutting emissions by two-thirds in just 15 years.
