Written - Capturing the Potential: A Green Jobs Strategy for Wales
We are pleased to announce that the Welsh Assembly Government is today publishing the Green Jobs Strategy document. The development of this strategy is a key commitment in our One Wales Programme for Government.
The Green Jobs Strategy will play a key part in shaping and driving the business opportunities associated with a move to a low carbon, low waste economy, including delivering in the following areas:
- One Wales target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3% per year in areas of devolved competence from 2011 onwards.
- 70% recycling of waste across all sectors by 2025.
- by 2025, generating more renewable electricity than we consume as a nation
Over 60 responses were received to the consultation process which have been taken into account in drafting the strategy. The overall aims of the strategy will be to:
· enable businesses to remain competitive in a world increasingly constrained by carbon, and where sustainability becomes a key business issue;
· support innovation and development of the new products and services that a low carbon economy will demand, and maximise Wales’ share of the commercial opportunities that will arise;
· enable businesses to play their part in stabilising and reducing the ecological footprint of
The Green Jobs Strategy fully reflects the business opportunities associated with our new approach to Sustainable Development, as a central ongoing principle of the Welsh Assembly Government, which is outlined in One Wales-One Planet. This reflects the importance of setting out a pathway to Wales using only our fair share of the earth’s finite resources and will show how a sustainable approach will improve lives in communities across Wales.
Assembly Members will have an opportunity to debate the Green Jobs Strategy during the Autumn.
