UK Government launches clean growth strategy to reduce carbon emissions

UK Government launches clean growth strategy to reduce carbon emissions

ADE Director Dr Tim Rotheray said: "The UK is poised to create a low-carbon, competitive economy, and combined heat and power, demand response and energy efficiency all have important roles to play".

According to the government, the carbon emissions are down by 42% while the economy has grown by 67% since 1990.

Low-carbon innovation is at the heart of the government's approach, climate change and industry minister Claire Perry said in a written statement to parliament.

Responding to the announcement, RenewableUK's chief executive, Hugh McNeal said "This government has unveiled an ambitious plan which sets us firmly on a course to deliver the modern, clean energy system which the United Kingdom needs".

Notably, the strategy confirms that the government will "publish a new Resources and Waste Strategy to make the United Kingdom a world leader in terms of competitiveness, resource productivity and resource efficiency".

Commenting on the policies, Environment Secretary Michael Gove, appointed back in June following the general election, said: "Through our ambitious plans to tackle waste, better manage our precious natural resources and create a more environmentally-focused agricultural system, this government is taking the lead in creating a cleaner, greener Britain".

Manufacturers also showed support for the proposals outlined in the Clean Growth Strategy.

"Government is clear that clean growth is a priority for the United Kingdom, and that the low-carbon sector can help to increase the competitiveness and productivity of our economy in the decades ahead, creating high-value jobs as well as taking effective action on climate change".

The strategy also includes the development of measures to support businesses to improve their energy productivity by up to 20% by 2030 and establish an industrial energy efficiency scheme to help large firms implement measures to cut their energy use and bills.

Ambition for the United Kingdom to be zero avoidable waste economy by 2050.

Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association chief executive Charlotte Morton said: "We look forward to BEIS's new Resources & Waste Strategy, which will need to be supported by meaningful funding and legislation to effect the scale of change needed for an urgent transition to a more circular economy". No other technology can make such a key contribution to so many different areas of the Clean Growth Strategy.
