Publication of UK Government’s new plan shows encouraging signs of providing certainty, says IEMA – but could do better.

Nick Blyth, Policy Lead at IEMA, has commented on the publication of the Clean Growth Strategy. Speaking this morning, Nick said: “We welcome today’s publication of the long-awaited plan. For many, there has been a real recent frustration with ‘stop-start’ policy approaches; the uncertainty regarding future company reporting, withdrawal of support from zero carbon homes and the loss of Carbon Capture support in 2015 spring to mind. It is encouraging that some commitments are returning through this new plan, and we are also hopeful to see signs of a more joined-up approach. IEMA members would also welcome and support further development for a much more lasting policy landscape. This is essential in providing confidence for business and investors, and in continuing the UK’s journey to a pioneering, prosperous zero carbon economy.”
