The Green Industrial Revolution: what will it mean for the recruitment sector?
Last Wednesday (18/11), the Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a Ten Point Plan, aiming to create a Green Industrial Revolution and generating 250,000 jobs across the UK.
In conjunction with hoping to eliminate our contribution to climate change by 2050, the PM’s proposal will cover clean energy, transport, nature and advanced technologies. As part of the PM’s mission to step up across the country, the plan will put to use £12 billion of Government investment to produce and support around 250,000 skilled green jobs.
At the centre of his plan will be the UK’s industrial heartlands including around the North East, Yorkshire and the Humber, Wales, Scotland and the West Midlands. Focusing on a sustainable future, the ten point plan includes innovation and finance, nature, public transport and electric vehicles among many others.
Of the plan, Boris Johnson said: “Although this year has taken a very different path to the one we expected, I haven’t lost sight of our ambitious plans to level up across the country. My Ten Point Plan will create, support and protect hundreds of thousands of green jobs, whilst making strides towards net zero by 2050.”
The announcement is an important one for all sectors, including the Facilities Management industry, as it will path the way for the future, and will help to continue the change for the better in terms of how the workplace is managed and how people connect with it.
