A business group has called on the government to ensure that the reforms of the energy efficiency tax landscape clarifies rather than weakens price signals in support of energy efficiency.
In an open letter released on 14 March, the Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group (CLG) also said the scale of disclosure on both carbon and energy should be widened across the private sector.
Overall the CLG urged policy makers to grasp the opportunities offered by the Paris agreement and to deliver a “clear, encouraging policy framework” that will drive success for business.
Eliot Whittington, deputy director of the CLG, said: “More and more business leaders are clear that this is a change to be welcomed. Business is ready to drive the low carbon economy in the UK but government must clearly align its intentions and help to unlock that change.”
