CBI comments on Prime Minister's green economy speech
The CBI commented on the Prime Minister’s speech on the value of the UK’s green economy.
Rhian Kelly, CBI Director for Business Environment policy, said:
“Businesses know that going green can boost growth. Our research shows that supporting the UK’s low-carbon economy with the right policies could potentially add £20bn to GDP by 2015.
“Britain must maximise these opportunities to become the leading destination for low-carbon investment and strengthen our exports of green goods and services to the rest of the world.”
