Industrial strategy must put sustainability and resilience at its core

20th May 2014

Andrew Raingold, Executive Director at the Aldersgate Group, has urged the political parties to make an enhanced industrial strategy a priority in the election manifestos. This forms part of a new series by Green Alliance of leading thinkers, from politics, business and green groups, to set out their one big manifesto idea for the next parliament.

Mr Raingold writes: "The government have made huge strides forward with the current industrial strategy, working in partnership with industry to deliver long term economic goals... This must be built on by the next government by addressing major, long term challenges and setting greater overall strategic direction."
