The Aldersgate Group support the Budget announcement for the introduction of a Green Investment Bank.
Peter Young, Chairman of the Aldersgate Group, said: "The new Green Investment Bank is rightly at the heart of the Government's growth and jobs strategy. This will help leverage private sector funds at sufficient scale to deliver a swift and competitive transition to a low carbon economy." "The initial £2 billion of equity is a good start but must be rapidly scaled up over the next Parliament. The total low carbon investment needed by 2020 is at least £250 billion, leading to more secure jobs and a more prosperous future."
