BCC responds to the government’s £3 billion of green investment 

Posted: 7th July 2020

Commenting on the government’s £3 billion package of green investment to decarbonise public buildings and cut emissions, BCC Co-Executive Director Claire Walker said:

“This scheme is a first step toward supporting livelihoods and achieving important carbon emissions targets.

“Our business communities across the UK have called for an economic recovery that prioritises jobs and supports our net-zero ambitions, as part of a coherent strategy to restart, rebuild and renew.

“BCC research indicates that the economy has endured an historic setback in the last quarter. Businesses will need to see further, bolder measures to protect and create jobs in the Chancellor’s statement tomorrow.”
