ENVIRONMENT campaign group Greenpeace has called on Chancellor Jeremy Hunt to introduce a “green industrial strategy” in his autumn budget on Wednesday.
The group says Britain risks missing out on huge jobs and growth opportunities if he fails to do so.
Greenpeace also said UK business investment is lower than the rest of the G7 group of industrialised countries.
Ami McCarthy, Greenpeace UK’s political campaigner, said: “While Jeremy Hunt attempts to pursue a divisive culture war strategy and attack the civil service, he ignores our flailing economy, and allows the US, EU and China to run rings around us in the race on green technology.
“We urgently need a sensible plan to boost the economy, help ordinary people with the cost of living, and tackle the climate crisis.
“Green infrastructure investment, with a focus on renewable energy, insulating our homes and making transport greener would do just that, alongside tax reforms to ensure the super-rich and big polluters contribute to a fair and green transition.”
