Progress on Green Deal but 'plenty of work to do' - CBI
The CBI responded to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) publishing details of the secondary legislation and the Government’s response to the Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation consultation.
Rhian Kelly, CBI Director for Business Environment policy, said:
“Having more details on how the Green Deal will operate on a practical level is an important step for a scheme that has the very real potential to cut costs for consumers and businesses in the long run, and help generate business investment and jobs.
“However, there is still plenty of work to do. With the launch of the Green Deal expected towards the end of the year, the Government needs to move quickly to put everything in place. It must ensure that businesses who want to get involved are in the best position to do so and put the right policies in place to stimulate consumer demand.”
