Business group says low-carbon transition boosting North’s economy


Low-carbon projects in the North of England are contributing to increased economic activity in the region, a new report by the Aldersgate Group has found. Published on Monday 12 September, the report said that low-carbon investment has created 136,000 jobs, developed supply chains, and supported skills development and innovation in the region. To build on this success, it recommended: the development of a new strategy for carbon capture and storage; a detailed emissions reduction plan that could drive private sector investment; and “regional champions” of the low-carbon economy, with local authorities routinely considering opportunities for the sector in their decision making.
