Delighted to have co-chaired a discussion this afternoon with Ted Christie Miller to discuss Onward’s latest report: ‘Greening the Giants’.
The report details how we can decarbonise the UK’s energy-intensive sectors while seizing the opportunity for new jobs and economic growth. High-carbon industries are disproportionately concentrated in the Midlands, the North of England and Scotland, with 51% of jobs in these industries located in these areas.
Our Net Zero target could create up to 1.7 million new green jobs by 2030. ‘Greening the Giants’ demonstrates the enormous potential of these regions to become major players in this green transition.
Thank you to everyone who took part in today’s call – some really great questions were raised. I hope everyone found it informative.
