Green economy worth £71bn to UK

Mapping The Net Zero Economy, a report by Confederation of British Industry (CBI) sees the UK’s drive to net-zero creating nearly a million new jobs and aiding areas of the UK that have experienced industrial decline.

The report notes that 840,000 jobs are supported by businesses in the net-zero economy, and that the UK can maintain its position at the forefront of the green revolution, but that it musty not be complacent.

Furthermore, businesses within the net-zero economy are distributed across the UK – alleviating some of the disparities that exist within the UK through economic activity, and regions, such as Tyneside, Teeside, Merseyside and the Humber have benefitted from renewables, contributing more to growth than other areas of the UK.
