A consultation on developing an industrial strategy for “high-wage, high skill, low-carbon” UK economy is being held by the Labour Party.
The questions featured in the consultation range from issues like carbon capture and storage, renewable energy, climate targets and energy efficiency.
The document said: “It is imperative that we refashion our economy so that it alleviates rather than exacerbates the mounting global climate crisis, with a just transition to reduced energy consumption, a balanced energy policy, and meeting our commitments under the Paris agreement […] Doing so presents an opportunity to take a leading role in the development of environmental technology.”
Labour has promised to ensure that 60% of the UK’s energy needs (electricity and heat) are met through renewable and low-carbon sources by 2030, if they were to be elected to government.
