Green Alliance calls for new govt framework for green jobs

Green Alliance calls for new govt framework for green jobs
More must be done to encourage the creation of green jobs in the UK, the Green Alliance has claimed.

Hannah Hislop, senior policy adviser at Green Alliance, said that the government must take steps to connect the problems with unemployment and climate change which the country is currently facing.

To do this she claimed that "a much stronger government framework" must be developed.

"In the wake of significant cuts to employment programmes like the Future Jobs Fund, we need better coordination of existing programmes and spending to make sure we can create jobs, up-skill people for growth areas, tackle fuel poverty and cut carbon emissions," Ms Hislop added.

In its coalition programme, the new Conservative-Liberal Democrat government laid out extensive plans for the movement of the UK to a low-carbon economy.

The document stated that the government must use "a wide range of levers" to support the creation of green jobs, however no specific policies were detailed.

Ms Hislop said that the Green Alliance will be working with a number of organisations to "address the challenge" in the months ahead. ADNFCR-1235-ID-19838980-ADNFCR
