Government Clean Growth Strategy Published

The Government’s Clean Growth Strategy, which aims to put clean growth at ‘the centre of our modern industrial strategy’, has now been published.

“Clean growth means growing our national income while cutting greenhouse gas emissions”

The document proposes to ‘change the way we heat our homes, power our cars, and run our electricity grid’.

Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Greg Clark states: “This is spread across a large number of sectors: from low cost, low carbon power generators to more efficient farms.”

“From innovators creating better batteries to the factories putting them in less polluting cars; from builders improving our homes so they are cheaper to run to helping businesses become more productive.”

“If we get it right, we will not just deliver reduced emissions, but also cleaner air, lower energy bills for households and businesses, an enhanced natural environment, good jobs and industrial opportunity.”

The UK was one of the first countries to recognise and act on the economic and security threats of climate change.

The Climate Change Act of 2008, committed the UK to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80 percent by 2050 compared to 1990 levels.

Emissions Reductions

The Government claim that since 1990, UK emissions have been reduced by 42 percent while the economy has grown by two thirds.

This equates to a faster emissions reduction than any other G7 nation.

The progress made means that emissions targets set during the first carbon budget have been outperformed by one percent.

Predictions have been made that the UK will outperform against the second and third budgets, covering the years 2013 to 2022, by almost five per cent and four per cent respectively.

The report states that in 2016, 47 percent of the UK’s electricity came from low carbon sources, around double the level in 2010.

The UK now has the largest installed offshore wind capacity in the world.
