The Prime Minister has now laid out his new ambitious ten point plan to create a Green Industrial Revolution – which will create and support hundreds of thousands of jobs across the UK.
The blueprint of his Green Industrial Revolution Blueprint is built around the UK’s strengths and industrial heartlands to level up and Build Back Greener, with new investment as part of £12 billion mobilised, with potentially more than three times as much from the private sector.
The Prime Minister’s blueprint will allow the UK to forge ahead with eradicating its contribution to climate change by 2050.
The Green Industrial Revolution will especially cover clean energy, transport, nature and innovative technologies. This will be particularly crucial in the run up to the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow next year.
The plan will mobilise £12 billion of government investment to create and support up to 250,000 highly-skilled green jobs in the UK, and spur over three times as much private sector investment by 2030.
The Prime Minister’s ten points, which are built around the UK’s strengths, are:
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
Although this year has taken a very different path to the one we expected, I haven’t lost sight of our ambitious plans to level up across the country. My Ten Point Plan will create, support and protect hundreds of thousands of green jobs, whilst making strides towards Net Zero by 2050.
Our green industrial revolution will be powered by the wind turbines of Scotland and the North East, propelled by the electric vehicles made in the Midlands and advanced by the latest technologies developed in Wales, so we can look ahead to a more prosperous, greener future.
