Green is Good for Growth
23 October 2012
The TUC's annual climate change conference 2012 will focus on how to deliver a greener and stronger UK economy.
The independent Committee on Climate Change has recently reported that the government 'must do more' if it is to have any hope of achieving vital carbon reduction targets. At the same time, with the UK economy facing a lost decade of stagnation, going green has potential to bring us huge economic benefits, securing the quality jobs and new investment that future economic success will depend upon.
Keynote addresses from the Business Secretary Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP and TUC General Secretary Designate Frances O'Grady and panel debates between business, trade unions, campaigners and politicians will be accompanied by expert-led workshops on key strategic issues in green economic policy including the development of the Green Investment Bank and the scope for achieving a green industrial policy. And we close with a Question to an MP's panel: What makes a good green government?
This exciting conference will make the case both for greener growth, and for the economic benefits that this approach could bring.
