Green Industry – UK2Zero
This campaign developed within a group of us from Labour International campaigning for a Green New Deal. We have a shared interest in shifting UK industrial policy away from fossil fuel dependency in an urgent but equitable manner. While most of us are members of the UK Labour Party we are not tribal about it and are happy to work with anyone who shares our belief in the utmost importance of a comprehensive, inclusive, democratically accountable, industrial green transition.
We hope to make a small contribution to that endeavour by focusing on the “nuts and bolts” of industrial and community transformation. We focus on the physical, chemical and mechanical processes that can be deployed to eliminate our current dependence on fossil fuels, and in the particularities of the locations where they can be deployed. Our research draws on best practice from around the globe, but as British citizens our purpose is primarily to inform and influence UK policymakers.
We are particularly interested in the win-win potential at local level of combining Community Wealth Building initiatives with Green Infrastructure renewal. Please get in touch if you have ideas, experience, expertise or raw enthusiasm which you believe could contribute to the campaign.
