Business issues

Energy and climate change

For UK business, climate change is not a threat to be feared, but an opportunity to grow the economy and lead the world – and by tackling it, we can make energy safer and more plentiful for all.

Tackling our energy and climate change challenges in a smart way will ensure that the UK is greening and growing for the future

As the recovery takes hold, all minds should be focused on how to build a more prosperous and competitive UK economy. Delivering secure, affordable and low-carbon energy will be crucial to achieving this, supporting growth now and underpinning our future economic health.

Business is, and will continue to be at the vanguard of this transformation, innovating and investing to deliver our energy and climate change goals. To support this, industry requires stable and long-term policy frameworks from government.

In tackling our energy and climate change challenges, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to deliver growth and jobs right across the country, and create a sustainable future for the next generation.
