Building a Better Future for the Construction Industry

CECA: Industry Stands Ready To Help Deliver Net Zero Carbon Future   18th November 2020

Civils contractors today welcomed the Prime Minister’s ten-point plan for a green industrial revolution by highlighting industry’s readiness to work with Government and deliver Britain’s net zero carbon future.

The Prime Minister’s plan will mobilise £12 billions of Government investment to create and support up to a quarter of a million green jobs in the UK, and is expected to spur over three times as much private sector investment by 2030.

Commenting, Director of External Affairs for the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) Marie-Claude Hemming said: “The UK Government’s commitment to boosting the economy and delivering the UK’s net zero carbon future is to be welcomed.

“This investment will not only help to level up the economy but will create high-skilled jobs across the UK.

“In particular, we are pleased that this plan recognises that the UK needs a mixed portfolio of energy generation, with projected investment in both wind energy and in large and small-scale new nuclear reactors.

“We hope this is the beginning of the uplift in investment the UK will need as we transition towards a net zero carbon future, and look forward to working with Government at all levels to help deliver the green jobs and industries of the future.”
