The business group warns the government isn’t tackling a major problem
The CBI has become to second organisation in a week to criticise the government’s lack of support for green energy.
Director John Cridland said the government needed to be giving more support to the emerging industry, of which the UK is a prominent participant.
“The green economy is an emerging market in its own right, brimming with opportunity.
“Yet, with the roll-back of renewables policies and the mixed messages on energy efficiency, the government risks sending a worrying signal to businesses.
“We need all countries to pull in the same direction at the Paris Climate Summit (in November) to give firms the certainty and confidence they need to invest in the green economy for the long run”.
