Green Jobs revolution
The Tories initially promised to cut greenhouse gas emissions to “net-zero” by 2050. Their November 2020 announcement went much farther.
The Government aims to create 10,000’s of new green jobs. In part these new green jobs are for those unfortunate people who have been made redundant because of the pandemic.
This green economy stimulus package could also help to “reskill” workers. Reskilling them for green jobs in areas such as insulation upgrades, offshore wind and carbon capture.
These measures go significantly beyond the Conservative’s manifesto commitment to create two million jobs in clean energy within the next decade.
